We reconnect people with wildlife to work together for nature’s recovery.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page for The North Wales Wildlife Trust. My Nain (grandmother in Welsh) was incredibly passionate about wildlife and spent many years studying and taking photographs of flora and fauna. She was actively involved with wildlife charity work and spent time raising money for the North Wales Wildlife Trust. To continue her Nain’s legacy, Sian wants to continue to raise money for the trust.

I am attempting to stand up paddleboard (SUP)  all the way around Wales whilst fundraising money for The North Wales Wildlife Trust. During the expedition I will be raising awareness about marine litter and its my ambition to do the expedition single use plastic free.

The expedition will be a 1000km journey around Wales including inland canals, rivers and along the rugged coastline, tackling the 2nd fastest flow of water in the world, negotiating busy shipping channels and challenging exposed headlands with complex waters. During the expedition I will be wild camping along the way. 

The aim of the trip is to bridge the gap between inland and coast, to highlight there is a problem of marine litter. We live in such a beautiful place and we need to make a change to protect it. Sadly 8 million bits of plastic enters our seas every day. 80% of marine litter originates from land-based sources. Sadly 1 million sea birds and 100,000 mammals die every year from the affects of marine litter. This has to change. Its my mission is to raise awareness, to inspire and educate others along the way to reduce single use plastic consumption.
