Even for cynical grown-ups, there is something a bit magical about candlelight. The restaurant I was in for Earth Hour decided they liked the darkness so much, they would leave the lights off after the hour was over! A few days after the event itself, I find myself sifting through photos captured on the night. […]

That’s why WWF Cymru’s ‘Welsh Wish-Dymuniad Cymru’ is different. It’s about bringing a community of diverse people together who share […]

Forest communities celebrate as they switch on to solar energy

This is the village of Fihoni, bordering the Gogoni forest. It’s one of the communities now benefitting from a shift to sustainable energy thanks […]

What I hope Wales will look like when my children have grown up

Snuggling up with my children to read their bedtime story is a precious moment for me. It’s a magical time watching them drift off to sleep. But imagine if that bedtime story took them to a future where people and wildlife thrive. That future is one where a small country like Wales made a very […]

A date with destiny: What happened when WWF brought a remote forest community face to face with a top Kenyan official

“Protect our forest so that our today, tomorrow and future is assured” says an elder, looking straight into Mr. Mbugua’s eyes. I’m in an office in Nairobi with representatives of the Aweer community, an indigenous tribe living in the coastal forests of Lamu County. WWF has arranged for the group to come to the capital […]

Helping communities protect globally important forests

Some of the most precious forests in coastal east Africa are under threat – and with the support of Size of Wales, we’ve been stepping up efforts to save them. The Mijikenda sacred forests or ‘Kayas’ of Kenya’s coast have immense cultural, religious and traditional value. People go to these forests to pray, appease ancestral […]
