Cornwall Wildlife Trust - Cornwall's wildlife charity!

I have been working with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust (CWT) , the  wildlife charity working to protect Cornwall's wildlife and wild places. CWT has helped people enjoy nature for over 50 years and is passionate about nature conservation. Its been a fascinating insight to the work of this charity and their many volunteers.

There are 47 Wildlife Trusts that are defined as “an independent, autonomous charity with its own trustees, whose primary concern is the conservation of nature within its own geographical area.Local Trusts are split into regions; a single Trust covers Scotland; Wales has six Trusts which work increasingly closely together; there are Trusts for Ulster, the Isle of Man, Alderney and the Isles of Scilly and 36 Trusts across England largely based on the old county boundaries or small groupings of such counties. All 47 Trusts are members of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/your-local-trust

CWT’s vision statement is for “for Cornwall to be rich in wildlife, cared for and appreciated by one and all.” Their mission is “to rebuild Cornwall’s biodiversity and engage everyone with the natural environment.”

The CWT have clear objectives:

  • deliver a living landscape for Cornwall.
  • restore Cornwall’s living seas
  • inspire people about Cornwall’s wildlife and environment
  • grow resources for delivery of our nature conservations goals
  • be widely recognised in Cornwall and beyond 
  • manage ourselves effectively

In 2016 the Wildlife Trusts were selected as the charity partner for the John Lewis Christmas TV advertisement offering an unrivalled opportunity to raise the profile of the work of the Trusts. https://www.theguardian.com/voluntary-sector-network/2016/nov/16/secrecy-wildlife-trusts-john-lewis-christmas-ad.

CWT protects Cornwall's wildlife and wild places on land and in our seas by a range of activities:

  • by managing 57 nature reserves, covering over 5,500 acres, that give refuge to rare and endangered species
  • by working in partnership with farmers, land owners and fishermen to support wildlife friendly management through our Living Landscapes and Living Seas projects
  • by campaigning and lobbying to protect wildlife and its environment to influence government policy
  • by recording and monitoring wildlife, share information, knowledge and expertise
  • by raising awareness about Cornwall's wildlife through education, events and volunteer opportunities
  • by helping children have fun with nature through Fox Club, the junior wildlife club aimed at primary aged children
