More about Cornwall Wildlife Trust

Wildlife Watch, the junior section of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, inspires future generations to care for Cornwall's precious wildlife and wild places through the national Wildlife Watch magazine and by providing fun, educational activities for primary school aged children. 


The Wildlife Watch group is Cornwall's leading wildlife club - where kids go wild for wildlife. 


We offer children and their families the opportunity to enjoy and learn about nature through many different wildlife themed events, from Rockpool Rambles to Minibeast Safaris - even making a bird box! 


Wildlife Watch events are organised by volunteer leaders who know all about local places and the wildlife that can be found there. Some of the great activities you can do with Wildlife Watch include: 

  • Pond-dipping
  • Bird box and bat box building
  • Rockpool rambles
  • Minibeast safaris
  • Arts and crafts
  • Wildlife experiences
  • Geology walks
  • Investigate amphibians
  • Survive and shelter building
  • Much, much more! 
Our events are open to non-members, but if you would like to join as a family member you can receive a Welcome pack and Wildlife Watch magazines three times a year. It's also a chance to take on exciting wildlife challenges to achieve the Hedgehog Award, the Kestrel Award and progress to the highest level, for the Nature Ranger Award. 
Our Wildlife Watch events are organised by Joanna Arvor and her trusty team of volunteers. They are a lot of fun and you'll find that discovering wildlife with the next generation is extremely rewarding too!
