Discovering, Conserving and Enhancing our Special Natural Environment

Formed by local people for local people, Wild Roseland covers the five parishes of Gerrans, Philleigh, Ruan Lanihorne, St Just in Roseland and Veryan.

We are a group of volunteers who care about looking after our nature and helping others to discover and enjoy Wild Roseland.




Assess and monitor the special natural environment that we have on the Roseland to better understand, protect and conserve it.
Inspire visitors and local people to discover and enjoy the Roseland’s nature and biodiversity by providing information and other opportunities to learn more, for all.
Initiate conservation projects and activities to conserve and develop the Roseland’s habitats and natural environment; and to work with other organisations to complement their initiatives.

Idea of the Month

Food Bank!

At this time of the year, life can be tough for wildlife.  With the weather worsening and the shorter days, it makes it harder to find the food they need.

Give them a helping hand!

Put out sunflower seeds, fat balls, fruit and mealworms, for the birds.  Small mammals will take any seeds that fall beneath the feeder.  If you still have hedgehogs out and about in your garden, put out minced meat, dog/cat food or chopped boiled egg.  For squirrels, put out nuts, sunflower seeds or chopped carrot.  Badgers like fruit, peanuts, dried dog food or mealworms.  Make sure that bird baths or ponds are not frozen and if you don’t have a pond, put out a bowl of fresh water.

While helping the wildlife, you can enjoy the wonderful sight of having them in your garden.
