Dyfi Wildlife Centre

Welcome to our exciting new project - the Dyfi Wildlife Centre

 

The Dyfi Wildlife Centre - A Community Project

In June 2018, after 4 years of planning and project development, we heard that our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to build a brand new visitor centre here at Cors Dyfi had been successful. The Dyfi Wildlife Centre was a reality and the Dyfi Osprey Project was about to get a new home. 

At the end of August 2019 we closed the doors of the second hand, 25-year-old portacabins for the last time. Those cabins had served us well but could no longer house our ever growing team of volunteers or give visitors the experience they deserve. 24 hours after closing the doors work started on the foundations for the new centre. 

Over the winter of 2019/20 the construction team have battled on through storm after storm to bring the new centre to life. This will be a stunning new building, cladin loaclly sourced timber, with leading-edge 'carbon positive' energy performance. It means that for the first time we will be able to give our visitors and volunteers the experience you would expect from a world-class project with all the facilities they need under one reclaimed-slate and solar-panel roof. 

When the centre opens its doors for the first time in April 2020 you will be able to see how much work has gone into developing this project in the six short months since the ospreys departed on migration. Although we will be open there is still much work to do as over the next 18-months we continue to install and develop additional facilities and resources. 

You can keep up to date with the project and the ospreys via our social media sites.
