Wales Holidays self-catering visitors to Pembrokeshire will be sure to visit stunning St David’s Cathedral in this tiny city at the far south-west of Wales. Now the cathedral has been chosen with five landmark sites to promote RSPB Cymru’s Giving Nature a Home campaign, aimed to inspire more people in Wales to create new homes for nature.
A few months ago RSPB Cymru launched a campaign to urge the people of Wales to provide a place for wildlife in their own gardens and outside spaces. As part of the campaign, bird boxes, hedgehog houses and bug hotels have now been put up in iconic buildings across Wales. Portmeirion and Menai Bridge in North Wales, Powis Castle and Aberystwyth Arts Centre in Mid Wales, the National Botanic Garden near Carmarthen have also all put up homes for nature to try and attract more wildlife. Studies show that 60% of wildlife species have declined over recent decades, those in trouble including many garden favourites such as starlings, butterflies and ladybirds. With seabird colonies, seals and dolphins off the coast of Pembrokeshire, St David’s participation is a great way of getting the whole family interested in wildlife and giving nature a helping hand.
