Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) is a high profile, visitor hotspot ‐ with over 600,000 people visiting the summit every year – and the numbers are growing. Videos from busy weekends show long queues of people waiting to reach the top of this iconic mountain. The increased popularity of Wales’ top tourist attractions brings additional challenges, and the Yr Wyddfa Partnership Plan has identified litter and specifically plastic pollution as one of the key pressures resulting from the high numbers of visitors. Today is International Mountain Day so a great chance to find out more here #MountainsMatter
