Cornwall Wildlife Trust
Cornwall Wildlife Trust
We are the leading local wildlife charity working to protect Cornwall's wildlife and wild places, ensuring all money raised in Cornwall, stays in Cornwall.
With over 57 nature reserves and thousands of acres of land, we work tirelessly to protect and support Cornwall's landscape. Reporting, rescuing, restoring or recording we work with volunteers and local groups to learn more about this stunning corner of England.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust is a registered charity formed in 1962 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers who wanted to safeguard the county’s unique wildlife and natural environment for future generations.
Since its formation, the Trust has grown significantly thanks to the combined efforts of dedicated volunteers and staff. It is now a highly effective force for conservation in Cornwall, and is widely respected and listened to.
We now have almost 14,000 adult members and 2,500 junior members and are concerned soleley with protecting Cornwall's wildlife and wild places.
Our vision is: Cornwall richer in wildlife, cared for and appreciated by one and all.
Our mission is: to rebuild Cornwall’s biodiversity and engage everyone with the natural environment.
Our aim is: to be Cornwall’s leading voluntary wildlife champion.
