What and where is the Welsh environment? So asks Morgan Parry in this issue. Wales has commitments to sustainable development but are we exploiting natural resources abroad?
Wales is surrounded by water on three sides, with over 1600km of coast – there's a lot happening around these shores, from avocets breeding at the Gwent Levels to mason bees burrowing into soft coastal cliffs.
There's a food theme to this issue: growing and buying it locally. Do our children understand the link between people and land? Meanwhile, the otters are back!
Wales is unique in having an intensive, field-by-field survey of its countryside. The information it provides helps decide which habitats, such as heathlands and wetlands, are most in need of restoration and protection.
There is much we can do to help the wildlife around us. Helping existing species such as sparrows or black grouse with nest boxes or habitat management is one way: reintroducing species is a lot more controversial.
