Join in the My Wild Life campaign during your time in Cornwall

March 28th, 2017

Cornwall’s Wildlife Trust has an ongoing campaign to increase awareness of Cornwall’s unique natural environment and its precious wildlife. To do this, they are asking residents of Cornwall and visitors to the beautiful county what is important about the region to them.

The campaign has been going since 2015, and it is not just Cornwall that is getting involved, as other wildlife trusts around the UK and Northern Ireland are taking part. The campaign spreads the message that nature matters to everyone, and encourages people to speak out about what wildlife and nature mean to them.

Examples of My Wild Life have spoken about the healing power of nature, which has been proven time and time again. Others mention the educational side of the beautiful area or the adventurous side of the wonderful wildlife. Then there is also how nature and wildlife inspires so many people, through art, photography and even in the workplace.

People of all ages and all walks of life can take part, from young toddlers to the elderly. As Cornwall has such a diverse landscape, from the rolling moors, lush green farmland, ethereal woodlands, rugged cliffs and gorgeous beaches, there really is something for everyone who lives in Cornwall and who visits on holiday.

It is not just the natural landscapes to love either, as the animal and bird wildlife are another reason to love getting outside when visiting Cornwall. In sea you have otters, seals, porpoise, dolphins and sometimes the odd whale or shark, then when you head on land there are deer, foxes, badgers and squirrels, to name a few. Look up to the trees and the sky, and there is even more wildlife to discover and enjoy, from the usual songbirds, to wildfowl and birds of prey.

You can join in with the My Wild Life campaign when staying at our luxury cottages when on your child friendly holidays in Falmouth this Easter. Head out on a countryside walk or bike ride, enjoy a stroll along the cliffs overlooking one of the many gorgeous beaches or even take a boat trip along the coast. You could even pay a visit to one of the stunning gardens near our cottages, which now spring is finally here, you can see the flowers in full bloom.

Be sure to take some pictures when out and about on your holiday and upload them to social media using the hashtag #MyWildLife and tag The Valley on Twitter @TheValleyResort, Instagram @thevalleycornwall or Facebook @TheValleyCottages.
