RSPB Cymru has thanked the Welsh Government with a special art creation for taking a step towards protecting special sites for seabirds in Wales’s coastal waters.
Today the Minister for Natural Resources Carl Sargeant announced additional protection in the seas around three key sites for seabirds; this follows a public consultation which was held earlier this year by Natural Resources Wales (NRW). The sites are Grassholm RSPB, and The Wildlife Trusts of South and West Wales islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Bardsey Island.
RSPB Cymru commissioned local artist Theo Shields to create a sand art picture at LLanddwyn Beach, Anglesey, North Wales, in the form of a Northern Gannet, Manx Shearwater and Puffin, to express its thanks to Welsh Government.
