About us Mission and vision Mission and vision The Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group SouthWest (FWAG SouthWest) is a registered charity representing the region’s farmers and landowners in the delivery of wildlife conservation. FWAG was first established as a charity in the 1960s by a group of forward thinking farmers who saw that the environment was an important part of a successful farming business. FWAG SouthWest shares this vision today and acts to: FWAG SouthWest provides independent expert advice, tailored to your needs and aimed at bringing environmental and financial benefits to your business. Our team of experienced advisers cover Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire. FWAG SouthWest is also part of the FWAG Association, an umbrella organisation under which many of the independent FWAG organisations across the country can join together to help influence government policy relating to the delivery of farmland environmental conservation. FWAG is celebrating 50 years of advice this year (2019).
