Denbighshire Countryside Service is part of an exciting new wildlife conservation project in Denbighshire and Flintshire. The Alun and Chwiler Living Landscape Project will improve habitats and benefit species within the River Alun (Alyn) and River Chwiler (Wheeler) corridors. This project is a partnership between Denbighshire and Flintshire County Councils, the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB, North Wales Wildlife Trust and Natural Resources Wales.

Dormouse - one of the species that will benefit from the projectAmy Green, project officer, based with North Wales Wildlife Trust, said “Our vision is to create a landscape within which wildlife thrives and people prosper together in a clean, healthy and sustainable environment. We want to involve local communities, including individuals, local groups, schools and businesses to help share knowledge about the area and come up with ideas to improve it for wildlife and people as well as encourage a greater appreciation for this wonderful landscape.”

The project has been funded by Dr Cymru/Welsh Water and WREN, with donations from Wildlife Trust members and supporters.  WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants generated by landfill tax through sites owned by FCC Environment, to community, environmental and heritage projects countrywide.
