There is not just a climate emergency, but an ecological emergency too. And the evidence is clear that we must increase the speed with which we are helping nature to recover if we are to prevent ecological breakdown.
The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership is a collaboration of local partners working together to grow nature – leading our local ambition for nature recovery.
We are a collaboration of local partners working together to grow nature – leading our local ambition for nature recovery. We are formed of individuals from across public, private and third sector bodies who recognise the importance of putting the environment at the heart of all our decision making. Find out more about our Board, our Chief Executive, and our meetings.
Our Environmental Growth Strategy provides a long-term framework for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to not just conserve, but to grow nature. This is about not just protecting but also enhancing nature – ensuring that there is more of it, and that it is bigger, better, more diverse and more joined up. Find out more about our 10 pillars to grow nature.
Nature is at the core of our local identity & heritage, and we are globally renowned for our iconic landscapes and seascapes. It is also foundational to our health, wellbeing and prosperity. But it is not as healthy as it seems, and its dramatic decline is accelerating due to climate change. Find out about the state of nature and why it matters.
Everyone can help to support nature’s recovery – from individuals, to community groups and businesses. Together we can deliver a cleaner, greener Cornwall & Isles of Scilly. Explore volunteer opportunities, find groups near you, get funding, and see how your business or local council can help grow nature.
We have declared an ecological emergency in acknowledgement of the evidence on nature’s decline.
