Mass Dolphin Stranding in Cornwall

You may have heard the sad story of the 26 common dolphins that were stranded and then perished near St Mawes in Cornwall earlier this week. The scale of this mass stranding is unprecedented in Cornwall and has been a real shock to everybody. 

Luckily for our little county in the South West, Cornwall Wildlife Trust have jumped into action and have been working closely with the Institute of Zoology to try to find out why this happened and what we can do to prevent this in the future.

Cornwall Wildlife Trust could not have responded so quickly without the funding and support they receive and this highlights why our membership of 1% for the Planet is so important to us here at Frugi. As members of 1% for the Planet we donate 1% of our turnover to two grass-roots environmental concerns to support them in their fantastic work for our planet: Pesticide Action Network (PAN UK) and Cornwall Wildlife Trust. 
We’ll keep you posted as we hear more from Cornwall Wildlife Trust and let you know what they discover. In the meantime have a read on  the Times website… http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/environment/article4107766.ece
