Biodiversity Under Threat - Penrhos, Holyhead
Will you please publicise a matter that is of the greatest concern to many people in the Holyhead/Holy Island are of Anglesey.
The Friends of Anglesey Red Squirrels
re-introduced red squirrels to Penrhos Nature Reserve
(Coastal Park) Holyhead 1n 2007. Now, four years on they are under threat from property developers Land and Lakes Ltd.
The community has used the nature reserve for 40 years. It has provided the community of Holy Island and tourists from all over Britain with the unique experience of been fully immersed in Natural Wales' unspoilt landscape.
It would be devastating for the local community of Holy Island to lose its reserve and catastrophic to the wealth of biodiversity it supports: Bats, red squirrels, butterflys, otters (witnessed by local fishermen),rabbit warrens, woodpeckers, kingfishers,buzzards and all manner of species fit for a paradise.
