Providing nets to help build young children's passion for the value of wildlife and protecting it.

"A lifelong passion for wildlife and the need to protect it" - Cornwall Wildlife Trust

Wildlife Watch is the national children’s membership for The Wildlife Trust. The Cornwall Wildlife Trust hosts over 80 volunteer led, wildlife session a year. These include rockpool rambles and beach cleans to mini beast hunts and wildlife gardening. The sessions are for children and their families, with each event involving up to twenty children each with a responsible adult.

Who wouldn’t want to support the idea of kids in wellies with dipping nets. Life in a Pond is an event in the beautiful Wildwood Eco Garden, Camborne, owned by a Wildlife Watch volunteer – who opens the garden to be used. This session enables children to dip into the watery world of a summer pond to see what they may find and learn about all the wonderful inhabitants. This can create memories for all the family that last a lifetime and, as we have found sometimes, also spark a lifelong passion for wildlife and the need to protect it.
