Horses grazing on Newborough Warren
Horses grazing on Newborough Warren
The warren was created in the 13th century, but the death of rabbits due to myxomatosis in 1956 (and the absence of other large grazing animals) led to thick rank grassland and a decline in the species richness of the dunes. Horses were introduced in 1986 to graze the dunes and this has reversed the decline and as a result the botanical species-richness of the grass has trebled. Snowdonia as a backdrop in the distance.
