The St Agnes MCG was set up on 2012 through the support of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust Your Shore Project. Between 2010 and 2013, the Your Shore project worked with the 5 Voluntary Marine Conservation Areas (VMCAs) around Cornwall to help people access their rich and diverse marine environment through inspiration and education.
We aim to promote the VMCA and Marine Conservation by;
Protect and conserve the marine environment
Raise awareness and increase understanding of the marine environment
Encourage education and research within the marine environment
To achieve these aims we run activities to showcase the local wildlife and habitats to all ages. We organise seabird, cetacean, underwater and rocky shore surveys with local volunteers and run other events from beach cleaning to film nights all to involve the community
