Based at the Thoday Building, Bangor University since it’s inception at 2011. BTO Cymru seeks to give a Welsh voice and perspective on issues that are important to the birds of Wales. This is achieved by working closely with partners across Wales, Welsh Assembly Government, Natural Resources Wales, RSPB, the bird clubs, and not forgetting our members and volunteers. It is reassuring to know that the statutory agencies in Wales look to us for the relevant evidence to support their work.
Having an office focused on Wales is essential for research that is appropriate to wales, whether through volunteers, professional fieldworkers or with research collaborators.
Our staff here in wales understand the needs of wales. They are an important point of contact for the Welsh volunteer network and our many members, volunteers, funders and partners. Having a deep knowledge of Wales this ensures that UK wide schemes, surveys and research projects are relevant to Wales.
The office is located at the Thoday Building, within the School of the Environment, Natural Resources, and Geography.
