The Lizard Peninsula is the most southerly part of mainland Britain. It is an astonishing place, where a combination of the mild maritime climate and the complex and unique geology has produced an area with a distinctive character. Some of its habitats and species only occur here on the Lizard, and others are extremely rare nationally.
The Linking the Lizard Partnership is a partnership between the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, National Trust and Natural England who are working with the National Farmers Union, The Cornwall Area of Outstanding Beauty Partnership and the University of Exeter.
Together these partnership organisations co-ordinate their work to ensure joined up thinking and a sensitive approach to enhance their conservation and land management work across the Lizard. They also collaborate on projects to:
• create better links between local communities, their environments and their economies
• raise the profile of the Lizard as a sustainable visitor destination
• find new ways for people to experience the outdoors
