Campaigners Fight To Save Ancient Woodland In Anglesey

Campaigners are fighting a desperate battle to save restored ancient woodland and a known red squirrel habitat in Anglesey (Welsh: Ynys Môn), which is an island off the north-west coast of Wales. A planning application for a Llangefni link road will be considered by Anglesey Council planners on Wednesday, September 2.

Coed Cadw, the Woodland Trust, has objected to the link road and have said:

“The lack of Ancient Woodland present on Anglesey accentuates the importance of conserving any Ancient woodland present on the isle.”

“Ancient Woodland is irreplaceable, cannot be recreated and its loss cannot be mitigated for; any damage or loss is entirely unacceptable.”

Coed Cadw are joined by others, including the Red Squirrel Trust, in a fight to preserve what is known to be a precious natural resource and wildlife habitat. Anglesey is an important stronghold of the endangered red squirrel. Objectors will present a petition calling for a halt to the plans as they currently stand and can be signed online via the Facebook page Save Llangefni's Ancient Woodland and Red Squirrel Habitat.
