Careful and appropriate grazing can make the difference between wildlife thriving or disappearing completely.

Land which has been undergrazed can be as poor in value to wildlife as land grazed and trampled by too many animals.

Wildlife will benefit from carefully matching the right livestock to the land, designing a balanced grazing system tailor made to encourage and enhance habitats for specific plants, animals, birds and insects.

PONT (Pori, Natur a Threftadaeth – Grazing, Nature and Heritage) is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to encourage and facilitate grazing for the benefit of the wildlife, landscape and cultural heritage of Wales.
