On 27 October, a whole host of visitors, journalists and celebrities descended on 'ugly, lovely Swansea' to mark the centenary of Dylan Thomas’ birth. One month on, we look back at how the new HLF-funded Dylan Thomas Exhibition is getting on.
To date, HLF has funded Landscape Partnership projects in Scotland covering an area seven times the size of the Isle of Skye. Two hundred square kilometres, on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park - an area famous for its distilleries - is the latest to benefit from this innovative approach to landscape conservation.
Ponds and coastal environments are some of our most valuable habitats and countless species rely on them to survive. Yet we lack critical information about how abundant they are and, in many cases, why they are at risk.
