Cardiff University research safeguarding wildlife in Wales and leading international conservation efforts is highlighted at Wales’ National Eisteddfod (August 4 - 11).
Visitors to the Cardiff University stand (number 222-223) at the National Eisteddfod in Mold can learn about the School of Biosciences’ work towards protecting Wales’ natural environment carried out at the School’s Llysdinam Field Centre in Mid-Wales. Nearly forty years of research and teaching at the Centre has helped to protect habitats and species, including the otter now witnessing a revival in Wales.
International conservation efforts by School of Biosciences’ researchers to protect endangered species such as the giant panda and orang-utan will also be highlighted.
Competitions at the University’s stand will give visitors the chance to sponsor an otter with the West Wales Wildlife Trust or a panda at the Wanglang Sanctuary in China, supporting this important environmental work.
Staff from the School of Welsh will also be delivering a number of lectures including the Welsh History Forum Annual Lecture by the Head of School, Professor Sioned Davies (Monday 6 August 11am) on aspects of life in the Clwydian Valley.
Students will also be on hand at the stand to share their experiences of studying at a leading teaching and research university and to advise visitors on courses available at the University.
