Bats and Birds Could Be at Risk From This New Housing Development
Anyone who has spent time in Wales knows that it is a beautiful, mountainous peninsula. In fact, the country is home to significant ancient woodlands that provide habitat for mice, bats, and birds of prey, among other animals.
Locals have repeatedly expressed concern about the noise pollution and increased traffic that will come from this hasty development.
Bats in particular are very sensitive to habitat disturbances, which can impair their health and cause chronic stress.
And since an impact on one species can throw off an entire ecosystem, this could in turn affect hawks, owls, and other raptors that call the area home.
