WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre, SA14 9SH

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at your local BioBlitz event. Our team of experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species of birds, bugs, plants and beasties as we can before the clock runs out. Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife. With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.

What’s happening:

At Bioblitz WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre you can explore the amazing WWT Llanelli as we celebrate Wales Nature Week.

Don’t miss our guided walk out onto the saltmarsh – normally inaccessible to visitors – to identify saltmarsh plants and look for creatures such as sea slaters and crabs!

Join our mammal walk and water vole walk to see signs of mammal activity (including lots of poo!) and see live wild mammals up close!

You can also join us for an expert-led bat walk on Friday night (9 June), where we will also search for other nocturnal wetland life. Booking for this walk is essential.

We will also be running expert-led surveys of plants, minibeasts, dragonflies, butterflies and pond creatures, and there will be guides in the hides to record and help you identify birds.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get close to wildlife and not to be missed! As part of Wales Nature Week we will also be leading a special Walk with a Warden session on Thursday 8 June at 11am. A full programme of events including details of times and guest speakers can be found at www.wwt.org.uk/llanelli.

 

  • Start – 9:30AM on 10 June
  • Finish – 5PM on 10 June

 

Getting here:

WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre lies on the northern shore of the Burry Inlet facing the Gower Peninsula and is off the A484 and B4304 to Swansea. To find us follow the duck signs off the M4 exiting at junction 48.

Most activities are wheelchair/pushchair friendly, however, the guided walk on the saltmarsh would prove challenging due to rough ground and no accessible paths.
