CORNWALL WILDLIFE TRUST GAIN FUNDING TO KEEP UP WILD PENWITH PROJECT
11 April 2014
A leading Cornish wildlife charity has received the support they were looking for in order to continue with its conservation work in Penwith. This will come as pleasant news to locals and visitors to the pet friendly accommodation in Cornwall who enjoy walking on the popular rolling hills that provide such picturesque views for all.
The company has recently declared that it will continue the support for the project helping volunteers for another year so that they can manage the habitat for even longer.
Currently volunteers meet every Tuesday to complete tasks such as scrub and bracken clearance on historical sites to mending hedges and clearing out invasive plants.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust said that work like this is essential to keep the specified regions open for wildflowers, insects and for all the wildlife that live there too.
Wild Penwith project manager for Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Liz Cox, said the funding from SWW has paved the way for the group to run 27 practical volunteer days and nine community events reaching more than 200 people.
