Heligan Wild's aim is to maximise biodiversity within a patchwork of habitats found throughout the 200 acres of historic Cornish estate and garden. Ancient woodland, hay meadows, grazed pasture, wetlands are all sustainably managed to encourage local wildlife. This is achieved using a variety of traditional methods including coppicing, charcoal burning, hay making, and low intensity grazing with our herd of Dexter cattle.
Horsemoor Hide lies at the heart of our estate, and offers the perfect location to enjoy Heligan’s wildlife. There is a large wildlife viewing area; along with live and recorded footage, interactive displays, photographs and information gathered by our dedicated Wildlife Team.
