Natural Aolo Williams will be presenting the new series of BBC Autumn Watch from Midwales tonight.
The program will be broadcast from four different locations in the UK, including Aolo at the Center for Alternative Technology (CAT) in Machinaule.
Aiolo said: “I am so excited to be back in the catwalk of the beautiful UNESCO Diffie Biosphere to present this year’s Fall Watch. There is so much wildlife in Midwest that it is a pleasure to see it thrive on a site that was once an industrial slate quarry.
“Welsh wildlife includes pine martens, hofinches, greenland white-fronted geese, chicken harriers, woodcocks, and many waders and waterfowl.
“But even where wildlife thrives, we know that the effects of climate change are already affecting biodiversity in the UK. We as a nation need to take action now, or some of our wildlife will be lost forever. ”
The Center for Alternative Technology (CAT) is the world’s leading environmental education center with nearly 50 years of experience in living and working with nature and a decade of thought leadership on how the UK can emit carbon. Address climate and biodiversity crisis.
Staff at the site, which is currently closed to the public, are busy preparing and working hard to follow the guidelines to support the BBC TV crew who arrived over the weekend.
Rob Bullen, CAT’s Visitor Center Marketing Manager, says: “Although we have closed the CAT to the public in accordance with lockdown guidelines, we are still grateful to welcome Aolo and a small BBC crew. It is very important for people to connect with nature and we hope that as the dark nights approach, the beauty of our site and its stunning wildlife will help lift people’s spirits. ”
One of the themes of this year’s series revolves around nature’s achievements for mental health and well – one that CAT provides to visitors and students in the beautiful surroundings of the foothills of southern Snowdonia.
“In addition to the autumn watch series, people can see more of CAT online,” says Rob. We capture some of the best wildlife in our own camera traps, including badgers, dormis and wild animals. We also have live webcams that feature the careful transition of oak forests to autumn colors and the possibility of seeing the dormouse at its feeding station.
People can join our online online webinars and support us by becoming members.
“Spending time in nature makes us happy and healthy. We want to welcome visitors when CAT is safe and appropriate. ”
