Snowdonia

Help us to protect Snowdonia - now and in the future. This incredible place needs urgent care. Snowdonia is one of Britian's best loved places. The stunning mountains are home to an amazing array of plants and wildlife. And the local communities and working farms form a unique landscape.

But Snowdonia's fragile environment is under extreme pressure. If we don't act now, we could lose much of what makes the area special.

Footpaths are eroding into giant scars across the landscape - because they can't cope with the high volume of visitors. Centuries old barns have become derelict and are dissapearing from our landscape - which means traditional building skills and local distinctiveness is being lost.

Woodlands and moors are shrinking in some places - as native plants are choked by invasive species like rhododendron, whilst sheep overgraze rare plants.
