Monday 22nd April Mustelids – Food for Thought Dr Gareth Parry
Gareth works as a biodiversity officer with Shropshire Council. On one of his visits to south Wales in 2012 some of our members joined a walk which he led to find animal tracks, and they came back with enthusiastic reports. We have been lucky enough to persuade Gareth to make another journey south to talk to us. His subject is “mustelids”, the family of carniverous mammals that includes Badgers, Weasels, Stoats, Polecats, Otters and the dreaded American Mink. Tonight will be a chance to learn something about their remarkable history and ecology and their importance to the ecosystem. We’ll also be looking at some of the negative images touted by the media and considering if their poor reputations are deserved.
7.30 pm at the OCLPSC
Summer Programme Details will be circulated in the spring. ___________________________________________________________
Coity Wallia Common
‘Coity Wallia Commons extend over 1,063 hectares from Sarn to Pencoed and back towards Blackmill and Glynogwr, north of Bridgend. In 2010 the commons received funding for a three year biodiversity enhancement project, primarily funded by Biffa Award. The aim of this project is to restore and reconnect 1,063 hectares of priority habitats on Cefn Hirgoed and Mynydd y Gaer, with particular emphasis on habitat management for the marsh fritillary butterfly, high brown fritillary butterfly, shrill carder bee and the bog bush cricket. The project is managed by PONT and funded by Biffa Award Coity Wallia Commoners Association, , Rockwool UK, Bridgend County Council, Coity Wallia Board of Conservators and the Countryside Council for Wales.
Coity Wallia Commons Biodiversity Enhancement Project also aims to engage the local community by providing volunteer days (held each Tuesday), school visits, promotional and educational materials, hosting events and guided walks and attending local events.
