When the coronavirus pandemic hit in March 2020, the landlocked among us felt keenly the sudden loss of access to the sea during the hardest days of the deepest lockdown. Cornwall has over 300 miles of coastline, much of it wild and uninhabited by humans, which makes it all the more appealing. When the chips are down – and even when they’re not – we head north, south or west for a breath of fresh sea air and a beach.
Wherever we go, and whatever we do, we have an impact. Let's make sure it’s a positive one. Do it #thekernowway. Clean Cornwall is asking Cornish residents, visitors and business owners to consider how we can all minimise our impact as we step into one of the busiest summers we've ever had.
So whether you are a local, or here on holiday.. we all have a shared responsibility to look after this special place.
We call it the Kernow Way
In Cornwall we say 'Doing it dreckly'.
There are wonders to be found – buried in sparkling sand, under the greens, pinks and browns of weed in the rockpools, and beneath the shining ripples of our coastal waters. During The Wildlife Trusts’ summer celebration of all things coastal –National Marine Week – Cornwall Wildlife Trust is offering people of all ages the chance to join experts and volunteers as they seek out marine treasures. There’s so much to discover, from shells on the beach to dolphins and whales swimming by.
