Llangloffan Fen was a selected site for the Long Forest project in Pembrokeshire, because it is a rare habitat with associated rare species. The aim is to improve the hedges on site to increase wildlife connectivity and improve water quality.

Keep Wales Tidy worked with the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, who have tenure on the site, to identify hedges for improvement.

8 volunteers and staff from the Wildlife Trust spent a total of 77 hours on the project and planted 785 native species trees, creating 180 metres of hedge.

Mari Williams, Long Forest officer in Pembrokeshire, said, “The hedges planted will connect habitats on the reserve, providing wildlife corridors and flight lines for bats. They will help to reduce run-off from surrounding agricultural land which will also help to improve water quality.”
