Helford Marine Conservation Group

The Helford Voluntary Marine Conservation Area was designated in 1987 to help protect the rich and and varied marine life of this beautiful estuary. The aims are to encourage people to become more involved with the marine environment and to work together to conserve it.

Many people with a direct interest in the river including sailors, landowners, fishermen, councillors, students and marine biologists, work together locally throughout the year to promote the sustainable use of this sensitive area. This includes a diverse events programme run by volunteers of the Helford Marine Conservation Group (HMCG).
