Project Collaborations

Our main mission statement is to engage with the welsh community at a national and regional level, to understand the modern welsh landscape and it’social and political attitude, and with this research and community knowledge to share our expertise through social science. We have a number of research, educational and public engagement working partnerships to enhance community knowledge of the behavior and ecology of such species and spread the word about the potential of a reintroduction programme for either or both species to Wales.
