How we conduct our tours and our involvement in the broader areas of environmental conservation are important to us, and drive the way we approach eco-tourism and education within the Polperro organisation.
Research and education are essential to the success of any environmental protection campaign. They represent vital sources of information which are used to gain an understanding of natural systems and their susceptibility to the impacts of human activities. However, ignorance and insufficient knowledge continue to be major concerns and we help you understand the issues and support the protection of the marine environment.
Investigate and consult on environmental issues by supplying detailed, comprehensive and balanced information to both the public and private sector.
Develop, conduct and produce educational programs, seminars, articles and publications that raise environmental awareness.
Encourage environmental awareness and participation at the community level by ensuring that our services are accessible to local groups and schools as well as to larger public and private sector institutions.
