Over the last few years the Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau SAC has implemented a large number of projects to help improve the condition of the site. Here are a few highlights:

  • Successful trial of helical anchors within the inner harbour at Porthdinllaen – this will help reduce the impact of moorings on seagrass
  • Release of the first and second edition of O Dan Y Don Magazine  
  • Creation of multiple digital platforms for the site
  • The first #2minutebeachclean station in North Wales hosted at Dylan's Restaurant, Cricieth 
  • Production of an Education Pack to help raise awareness in schools
  • Installation of seal pup disturbance panels to re assure people that most of the pups are fine and need to be left alone
  • Implementation of a catchment scale project, Tir a Môr, where we looked at managing land and sea together, activities included:
    • The trial of a payment for outcomes scheme
    • Improving habitat management along the Wales Coast Path
    • Improving water quality in the Daron catchment
    • Exploring options for species restoration and management including otters and crawfish
    • Improving management in the marine environment 
  • We hosted a global seagrass seminar in 2016 where scientists and marine managers from all over the world attended

We aim to produce interesting and informative updates on the work we undertake. We provide this information through multiple sources including progress reports, via O Dan y Don, through email updates and via our social media platforms.
