Dear Cornwall AONB supporters, stakeholders, community groups, individuals, organisations


Launch of Wheal Buzzy mining bees project:

Sat 24th November 2018, St Ives - we will be launching our exciting and pioneering new Wheal Buzzy project.  We have received Heritage Lottery Funding to safeguard and enhance conditions for mining bees, which will take place in West Penwith, parts of the Lizard, St Agnes and North Cornwall.  The project focuses on protecting and enhancing declining solitary mining bee habitats – creating 22 hectares of habitat for mining bees on 16 different sites across the Cornwall AONB.  It’s a 2 year project and we’ll work in partnership with a wide network of Parish and Town Councils, community groups and trusts, schools, universities, churches and individuals to enable local people to learn about mining bees and to work with us to help protect and support the remaining habitats for the benefit of future generations.


There are over 190 species of bee in the Cornwall AONB and over 120 of these are solitary mining bees making our area of national significance having larger populations than anywhere else in the UK. There are over 20 endangered and nationally scarce species present, however the number of sites have declined by over 50% in the last 25 years.


Come along and find out more at the launch event on 24th November at St Ives, Cornwall – book your FREE ticket via Eventbrite and see attached poster for details. 


Cornwall AONB App new way to explore the AONB:

We now have a Cornwall AONB App, which will give you the opportunity to explore the twelve local sections of the Cornwall AONB from your armchair but better still why not get out and about and explore these sections using our App as your guide. It gives you all the information you need held in the palm of your hand. Whether you’re on the Rame Peninsula or way down west in Penwith the app will be your ‘go to’ source of information on what to look for and where to go.

We’ve been working with Pirate FM to develop our app making sure we get things right and we would really appreciate your feedback and let us know of any additional information that would be useful to feature on the app.  Available to download on Android or iPhone – search ‘Cornwall AONB’ in your phone’s app store

The Cornwall AONB Partnership has been discussing the Review in detail and met with Julian Glover, leading the Review, when he visited during the summer.  The Cornwall AONB Partnership will submit a response to the Review by 18th December 2018.  But, if you live, work, own a business in the AONB, or just love to visit, please take part in the online survey.
