Bute Park Bat Meadow

Help us to conserve wildlife in Cardiff!

The Bute Park Bat Meadow project will create bat friendly wildflower meadow areas, habitat piles for a variety of wildlife and install a selection of new bat boxes. It will also allow more people to access nature and actively help conserve wildlife, and see some of our amazing mammals up close.

We aim to:

  1. Create a new wildlife meadow along with habitat piles and new bat boxes
  2. Monitor wildlife using the areas
  3. Train volunteers and community members in wildlife gardening and wildlife monitoring techniques
  4. Increase access to nature for under-represented groups

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across hundreds of regions in England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.

Thank you to all who voted for us – our project is the lucky recipient of £12,000! Please check here for more details of work party dates and events or contact us @cardiffbatgroup or chair @cardiffbats.org.uk
