Wildlife Watch, the junior section of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, inspires future generations to care for Cornwall's precious wildlife and wild places. Those with family memberships receive the Wildlife Watch magazine and access to fun and educational activities perfect for primary school-aged children.

Wildlife Watch is Cornwall's leading wildlife club - where kids go wild for wildlife.

We offer children and their families the opportunity to enjoy and learn about nature through many different wildlife themed events, from Rockpool Rambles to Minibeast Safaris to making bird boxes.

Wildlife Watch events are organised by Cornwall Wildlife Trust and led by a mix of excellent local wildlife education providers and volunteers who know all about local places and the wildlife that can be found there.

Please note that all Wildlife Watch events and activities have been cancelled for the foreseeable future due to the impacts of Covid-19. We will update you with news about the programme in due course.
