*** We've done it!!! Target reached!!! ***

Great News -a very generous donor has offered to buy Nant Bran Wood outright, and place it in trust for long term research and conservation. The purchase is currently in progress (solicitors instructed)! As a result, all monies pledged on this crowdfunding site will no longer be collected (no need to cancel the payments, we just won't receive them) -but we'd still be very grateful if you would be willing to support the set up of the long-term research projects, and the initial conservation work. To do this, you'll need transfer your donations into the following Just-Giving fund: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/Welsh-Rainforest

Thank you so much for your support :) 

 

--- Original Project Description ---

Join with Eco-explore (www.eco-explore.co.uk) in purchasing and protecting 12 acres of beautiful Welsh oak woodland, as a study site for today's research into the impacts of climate change on woodland ecosystems, and for the benefit of future generations. The wood will be used for scientific research into the ecological impacts of climate change on woodland ecosystems -the focus of several PhD- and Masters-level research projects based at Cardiff University in collaboration with Eco-explore.
