The Friends joined forces with the Fowey Marine Conservation Area Volunteer Group in 2012. With a programme of walks and talks as well as a variety of practical conservation activities, there really is something for everyone.
Our membership is open to all, and we are a friendly group with people from all walks of life -

We began by setting up a talk about otters by Dave Groves of the Cornwall mammal Group to inform members who had not studied otters previously.
We hope to join, or at least mirror, the proposed Coastal Otter Project but until this gets going we have started by ourselves.
Our initial aim was to survey the estuary for signs of otter and hopefully get photographic evidence of the otters, too.
Accompanied by other Friends of Fowey Estuary members, friends or family members I have made eleven forays onto the estuary to gather information by obsevation and by setting trailcams. We have used our legs, kayaks and boats and trailcams have been set for five spells from three days to two weeks. We have used my trailcam and others borrowed from Phil Croxton, Phil Ouless and the Cornwall Mammal Group.
The cameras were sited in places the rock, there was indeed spraint upon it.
