As a charity the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) is reliant on public donations in order to do it's essential work. Like many of the Wildlife Trusts WTSWW is now working at a landscape scale, for example it's work on Skomer and Skokholm islands and the Pumlumon project. This is a joint project with Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust and WTSWW based in the largest watershed in Wales to find sustainable solutions to current pressures on land management and rural economic regeneration. As the source of 8 rivers, including the Wye and the Severn, it is an important resource, over the years intensive farming has reduced the mountains ability to absorb water, the important bogs on the top have become less resiliant and sponge like. As a consequence Carbon dioxide is being released from the bogs and water is not being absorbed, resulting in flooding downstream. As farming has declined in the area and landowners are struggling the Wildlife Trusts are endeavouring to work with land owners to ensure that new eco industries are set up to save both the local communities and the local environment.
