Raising the profile of soil within geo-conservation: South Stack - a case study from the Anglesey Geopark
biodiversity and geodiversity are well known and respected aspects of conservation which can attract tourist interest; this paper considers how soil can be made the central integrating theme for a variety of natural interests

This paper presents a case study from a tourist honey pot within Geomon, the Anglesey Geopark, where the general public could easily be encouraged to consider soil as the key to a range of aspects of landscape and biodiversity.
