Friends of the Fowey Estuary

At Low Water, Readymoney Cove reveals many rockpool treasures and we organize events for children and adults alike, to come and discover them with us. Several volunteers have been lucky enough to receive training in species ID, organizing events and much more, from the Marine Conservation team at Cornwall Wildlife Trust. There is ongoing support and involvement from CWT with other marine projects going on which we are informed about and welcomed to take part in.

We run a series of rockpool events during the year – usually timed for school holidays. We venture further afield sometimes – to Spit Beach, Par, for example and we also run events for schools when requested to do so. It’s a really fun thing to help with and even those who come along feeling they have little or no knowledge are liable to get hooked and want to learn more.

There is plenty for the more experienced volunteers to do with surveys and recording particularly. For example, last year a Stalked Jellyfish was found at Readymoney – this is a Biodiversity Action Plan species and at Spit Beach we found Honeycomb Worm – a BAP Habitat species.
