As part of the Reconciling Conservation & Recreation series of films, this video has been produced to help people enjoy the Gorges of Wales in a responsible and sustainable way. For many years the gorges of Wales have been a wonderful resource for adventure activities such as gorge walking and canoeing. However, they are also nationally and internationally important from a conservation perspective, particularly for the rare plants that grow in the highly humid environment provided by the almost constantly running water. With increasing numbers of people enjoying the opportunities offered by outdoor recreation in the UK, the number of people using these gorges has also risen. However, the designation of some of these gorges as special European sites means that we all need to ensure that activities on these sites are not damaging to the important wildlife and environment which is so attractive and important for conservation.
