The Plight of the Wild Welsh pony – a new initiative

Donna Udall is a Researcher who is working with the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) at Coventry University, to raise awareness of the semi-feral Welsh Mountain Pony and how this will affect the moors, hills and communities of Wales.  She is looking for donations from interested parties via a gofundme page.

Donna, Colin Thomas, and Ben Cook are working on a project to highlight the loss of the semi-feral welsh mountain pony and the impact this will have on the biodiversity, and other environmental concerns, of the Welsh uplands; If individuals were to kindly donate £10, and enough money raised, Donna will send you a free copy of the book they hope to produce. There are more details about the project via the link. Thank you
