G7 'legacy' project launched to protect and restore nature across Cornwall

The UK government has pledged an initial £700,000 for a nature recovery project in Cornwall as a "legacy" of this week's G7 summit.

The funding, secured by Cornwall Council, Natural England and Cornwall Wildlife Trust and others, will be used to "knit together" precious habitats as part of an England-wide Nature Recovery Network.

This will mean connecting national nature reserves such as Goss Moor to other important areas for nature, such as the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the coast and heritage sites.  read more »
