Cornwall’s marine environment is better protected through designated Marine Conservation Zones and supported locally by engaged and proactive Local Marine Groups.
We are very lucky in Cornwall to have this incredible network of Local Marine Conservation Groups that are supported by the Your Shore Beach Rangers Project. All of these community groups are made up entirely of volunteers! These brilliant individuals work together to monitor their area of sea and shore and are the first response to changes or concerns in their local marine environment. This Your Shore network all come together to act as a voice for our seas which we celebrate every year with a big annual conference.
There are so many opportunities for new people to get involved, so find your closest group and give them a shout!
Are you already a part of one of our local wildlife conservation groups around Cornwall? Or perhaps you’re in our Beach Rangers Academy? If so, we’d love to hear from you. Tell us about yourself or your group HERE (it only takes a few minutes – we promise!) and share your stories. We’d love to celebrate the amazing work you do!
Hi, I’m Ryan Nelson! I live in the Hamptons, out on Long Island, near Ponquogue Beach. The beach is a place where I can find peace and serenity. It’s a place where I can sit and clear my head. The waves crashing on the shore somehow helps me to relax, while also reminding me that I am far from the stressors of daily life.
