He is widely known as a popular member of Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch and presenting other tv series such as Wild Wales, Rugged Wales and Great Welsh Parks for BBC2 as well as being President of Wildlife Trusts Wales.

“I am thrilled to have been asked to act as Patron to this wonderful Charity.  This group of volunteers have worked tirelessly to improve this valuable woodland rescued from the threat of becoming landfill.  They have been looking after this amazing space, Coed y Werin, since 2002 with little outside help other than a dedicated bunch of hard working, enthusiastic, visionary volunteers and it’s fantastic to see what they have achieved”.
