Did you know, one in six species in Wales is under threat?

It’s an alarming statistic, but the good news is there are thousands of people across the country who are determined to stop nature’s decline.

We want to celebrate Nature’s Heroes at the Tidy Wales Awards.

It might be an individual on a mission to remove invasive species or a landowner restoring hedgerows. Perhaps a community group has created a new wildlife habitat. Or an organisation has improved its land management practices for pollinators.

Of course, the natural environment provides an important haven for people too. We especially want to hear from projects that have also boosted the well-being of our communities.

This category is open to anybody to apply.
