Inspirational wildlife expert Gary Zammit from Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre in Portreath is the latest to support Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s successful My Wild Life campaign which aims to increase awareness of the importance of Cornwall’s unique natural environment and precious wildlife to all our lives.
The Trust has been protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places for over half a century and knows that a beautiful, thriving natural environment is better for our wellbeing, our community and for our economy. The simple fact is; nature is good for us!
Gary has been a long term supporter of the Trust and is sure, once again, to be a main attraction at the charity’s annual weekend Wildlife Celebration’ event held at the stunning Trebah Garden near Falmouth on the 23rd and 24th April. Visitors will be able to meet and learn all about a host of fascinating creatures such as Chunk the eagle owl, Bea the buzzard, Harry the Harris Hawk, Severus the grass snake and Simon the corn snake as well as house and harvest mice, voles, ferrets and toads!
Gary Zammit says,
“I’ve lived and worked in Cornwall for over twenty years now, I only came here on Holiday but never left! Cornwall is an incredible place with an amazing landscape and an abundance of wildlife. There is something new around every corner, always more wildlife to discover. To add the icing on the cake my work links the beauty of the landscape to the wildlife and what’s more I get to share it with people every day. Beat that for a job!”
“Wildlife brings me joy every day and I support Cornwall Wildlife Trust as they are as passionate about Cornwall’s wildlife as I am”.
Chris Betty, Communications Officer at Cornwall Wildlife Trust says,
Gary is a hugely valued friend of the Trust and has worked with us at many events over the years sharing his passion and knowledge with others. He was an obvious choice to get involved with our My Wild Life campaign and we really appreciate his support”.
