You will build partnerships, develop contacts and build a suite of projects as well and engage with local landowners, experts and other NaB! Partners and contractors.

Within NaB! the High Brown Fritillary is one of a small number of Single Species projects that will be delivered. The High Brown Fritillary is Great Britain’s most threatened butterfly species, and also the butterfly showing the greatest level of historical decline across Wales and the rest of the UK (with a 96% decrease in its distribution). Only a single colony remains in Wales, with the species having been restricted to the Old Castle Down and Cwm Alun in the Vale of Glamorgan for some time. As such, the species is highly vulnerable to extinction and is listed as being of high priority in the Butterfly Conservation Wales Conservation Strategy 2025.
