The wildlife on your doorstep is under threat and we need your support to help safeguarding our best-loved species across the county. Cornwall Wildlife Trust manages 57 nature reserves, covering over 5,500 acres which provides the diverse range of habitats essential for wildlife to thrive. Will you help give your local wildlife a fighting chance?

Restoring and maintaining Cornwall’s wild landscapes and fragile habitats demands specialist knowledge and significant resources. Behind the scenes, a team of dedicated people work hard to ensure that our beautiful county remains diverse and rich with wildlife for future generations.

Caring for such extraordinary places takes constant dedication. Every year it costs £720,248 to keep our nature reserves wild
