Make a difference where you live by giving your local environment a voice. Inspire others to get involved and join the Your Shore community.  

Do you want to inspire the local community to get involved with marine conservation?

Do you want to raise awareness of your amazing marine environment through engaging and motivational events?

Are you concerned for the wellbeing of our coast? Help us understand the problem and be a part of the solution.

The Your Shore network is made up of a number of both longstanding and new local marine conservation groups that are always looking for local volunteers to get involved.

It’s about inspiring people to care for their local area, sharing ideas and knowledge, linking with other groups in Cornwall, meeting new people and staying active through activities, meetings, events and volunteering.

“Whats the best thing about being involved with your local marine group? Joining with really pleasant like-minded folk to do something for our local Marine/Shoreline environment either by physical effort or recording/data collection.”
