Kate says the wildlife was a key reason for moving to Wales

Gwent Wildlife Trust have been boosted by the signing of a celebrity member - BBC Springwatch presenter Kate Humble.

Kate, who lives in the Wye Valley, came to fame with a role alongside Rolf Harris on Animal Hospital in 1997 and is now one of TV's best known science and nature presenters.

"I'm pleased to support the work of my local wildlife trust," she said.

"Gwent is a beautiful county absolutely teeming with wildlife and that's one of the reasons I came to live here."

"From the post-industrial landscapes in the west to the rolling green hills above the Wye Valley, there is just so much life.

"Gwent Wildlife Trust is working hard to conserve our local environment for the benefit of both local people and wildlife and I am just pleased to be able to do my bit to help them in their work."

Denis Jackson, the trust's people and wildlife manager, said: "We're so pleased to have Kate supporting us as a member.

"The support of our members, nearly 10,000 people now, means we really do have the mandate from Gwent's people to help them conserve and enhance their local environment.

"Every member means we can do that little bit more."
