There are several nature reserves around Camborne. By creating reserves, the wildlife and archaeological features of the area can be protected and managed for future generations to enjoy.

Protection of the coast from Godrevy Head to Portreath has also been undertaken by designating this An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Although not defined as a Nature Reserve, The National Trust own the majority of this land and work hard to manage and protect the wildlife of this area. Cornwall Wildlife Trust manage Pendarves Wood south of Camborne which supports many woodland plants and animals and is home to the rare Noctule Bat.

The Red River Valley Local Nature Reserve which runs from Tuckingmill Valley Park to the sea at Gwithian can be accessed for much of its length and is looked after by English Nature and Cornwall Council.
