My Cornish Pony Appeal


Kennack Sands     Wildlife



Sponsor a pony to look after Cornwall’s nature on the Lizard and Goss Moor.

Natural England is asking the public to sponsor the native ponies.

Their grazing helps maintain the amazing habitats of heath and coastal areas on the reserves, which are two of the country’s top wildlife sites.

The Lizard is known and protected for its stunning displays of spring flowers. Summer visitors include the Dartford warbler and nightjar and the reserve is one of England’s only strongholds for rare choughs.

The free roaming ponies are hardy traditional breeds including Dartmoor, Exmoor & Shetland and are well suited to the difficult terrain found on our reserves where they thrive.

The money raised will help to pay for veterinary care and supplementary feeds, especially over winter.

There are three levels of sponsorship: Bronze (£20), Silver (£50) and Gold (£500). All sponsors will receive a certificate, and information about the herd. Silver and Gold sponsors also get guided visits and an opportunity to meet some ponies.

Support the pony herd by making a donation on line at www.easydonate.org/NENG002
