The enhancement project will include a number of improvements to the nature reserve including grassland and woodland management, upgrades to pathways, and enhancements to the overall visitor experience by installing a range of new signage.

Environmental protection is a key priority for us at enfinium and we are always striving to protect the biodiversity in our local communities. This project is a great opportunity to continue the involvement of enfinium Parc Adfer in the vital preservation of the local wildlife and environment in North Wales.”

The pledge is the latest example of enfinium’s commitment to their vision of ‘making a difference today to deliver a cleaner tomorrow’.

Dr Graeme Cotterill, Fundraising Director at North Wales Wildlife Trust, said “We’re always delighted to be able to work for wildlife with partners, and it’s great to have enfinium on board. Their support is vital to us achieving our vision for Y Graig as a haven for people and wildlife alike, and we’re looking forward to local residents and rare species reaping the benefits.”
