Speaking out for Welsh Wildlife
The Initiative for Nature Conservation Cymru (INCC) was founded in 2018 as a charitable incorporated organisation (charity number: 1180113). Our vision is of ‘a Wales with more wildlife in more places, created by a society that intrinsically values the natural world’.
INCC was formed in response to the growing need for a truly independent nature conservation organisation for Wales. An organisation that was able to speak out and challenge environmental decision makers, Government and statutory bodies to do more for Welsh wildlife. To help achieve this we undertake a wide variety of nature conservation activities, including:
●Targeted species and habitat conservation projects
●Research, surveys and monitoring
●Practical habitat management and landowner advisory
●Community engagement and education
●Advocacy and campaigns
To remain uncompromised and objective we do not seek or accept direct funding from Welsh Government or its statutory environmental body. Instead, INCC relies on the generosity of individual supporters, grant giving trusts and foundations.
‘A Wales with more wildlife in more places, created by a society that intrinsically values the natural world’.
