Natural Resources Wales has teamed up with Coventry University to encourage people out into the beautiful Welsh countryside and to find out what stops them from going.  Some of the feedback we’ve had is that people are worried about livestock in open spaces.  What to do if you see a herd of cows, for instance?  What to do if you are walking your dog?  Hence we’ve asked PONT (Pori Natur A Threftadaeth) to deliver some training for us that addresses some of these issues.  First they will explain why animals in our landscapes are so important for biodiversity and then they’ll explain what to do if you see some. This free 2 hour online training course is designed to help you feel comfortable in the countryside and to advise others you might also see this as a challenges.

The first session is Friday 19th January at 10am via Teams.

The second session is Thursday 25th January at 10am via Teams

The third session is Friday 26th January at 10 am via Teams.

Here’s the link to sign up for either.


This programme will support projects that will help young people in Wales (16- 30) with disabilities or those from minoritised ethnic backgrounds. Partnerships are invited to apply for grants of up to £3 million to enable young people from these groups to consider a green career, offering them skills, work experience and employment.
