The charities which the Lord Mayor of Cardiff has chosen to support during 2017/18 are the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds Cymru and Buglife Cymru.


RSPB Cymru is passionate about wildlife and is dedicated to saving it. Since the RSPB began its mission in 1889 the threats nature faces have grown. RSPB Cymru has risen to meet these challenges by protecting nature rich places, restoring fragile populations of wildlife to the countryside and forging new partnerships, encouraging others to give nature the home it needs. It’s bringing thousands of young people and their families closer to our urban wildlife in Cardiff, popping up in parks, community hubs and green spaces across the city and igniting a new found curiosity for nature.


 

Buglife Cymru is devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates, and is actively working to save Wales’ rarest small animals; from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice, spiders to snails. Cardiff is a flagship city for Buglife Cymru’s pollinator work and over the past 18 months the charity has worked with local community groups, schools, Cardiff Council and others to enhance over 100 areas across the city, by providing food and shelter for our pollinating insects via its Cardiff Urban Buzz project. 


 

Over the next year The Lord Mayor has pledged to help RSPB Cymru and Buglife Cymru raise their profile as well as raising much need funds by hosting special fundraising events and key events in the charity’s calendar.


 

Donations will be gratefully received.
