The Walk on the Wildside

Two Wildlife Trust staff are polishing their walking boots for some serious hiking to raise money for Skomer and the Welsh Wildlife Centre. Llinos Richards, who used to work on Skokholm Island and now manages the Welsh Wildlife Centre, and Lucy Griffiths who manages Lockley Lodge, our mainland shop and information centre at the boat departure point, are getting ready to start a mammoth charity trek........they are looking for your support to keep them going through those many, many miles..!

The Walk on the Wildside

186 miles, 12 days, 2 feet, 1 great cause......

The Walk on the Wild Side is a charity trek covering the entire 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in 12 days this September to raise vital funds for the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. We’re hoping to raise over £2000 for the Trust and would really appreciate your support.

Where will the money go?
We’re both passionate about conservation education and are keen to help the Trust improve the facilities it provides for schools and other visitors to its reserves. Thousands of children and adults visit our reserves each year both for pleasure and for educational purposes and in order to safeguard local wildlife for the future it is vital that we get our conservation message across to our visitors in an engaging and impactful way. The funds raised by the Walk on the Wild Side will go directly towards the development of facilities and material for educating future generations of conservationists, specifically those on our reserves at Skomer Island and the Teifi Marshes.

How can you help?
We're really hoping that both our local communities and visitors to the area will support us on our journey by sponsoring us, making a donation, spreading the word, or perhaps even joining us on part of the walk. We'll be posting our itinerary regular progress updates on our web site

Thank you for your support…
Llinos & Lucy
