Management Ltd, (formerly Bodorgan Wildlife Trust) has been
responsible for managing the
biodiversity of Bodorgan Estate land since 1999.
The Estate is located in the south-western quarter of Anglesey, North
Wales. BEM Ltd co-ordinates conservation, management of agricultural environmental schemes
and environmental designations such as SSSI sites etc. It is at the
forefront of active management and stewardship of the resources contained
within the Estate. The Estate is effectively the largest reserve on Anglesey, covering a significant amount of land.
We have initiated conservation projects such as the Red Squirrel
reintroduction programme, we protect
Barn Owls by providing nest boxes across the Estate, undertake bird
surveys with British Trust for Ornithology, and actively work to eradicate
alien species such as Himalyan Balsam and Japanese Knotweed.
regard to Agricultural Environmental Schemes, some areas of the Estate take
part in the Tir Gofal scheme to maintain habitats and features of special
value. We have also created an experimental crop of Willow Short
Rotational Crop to see if this would be a viable option for heat and power
BEM Ltd is working with Coed Cymru to develop a comprehensive
estate wide woodland management plan.
Many areas of the Bodorgan
Estate have received environmental designations such as our five SSSI sites,
and an SAC . Our motor racing circuit, Trac Mon, was the first
circuit to sign up to EEMS, the UK Government's Energy Efficient Motor Sport
initiative, which aims to promote a sustainable future for the UK motor
sport industry by addressing the environmental issues of carbon and other
toxic emissions and fuel energy wastage.
