Westcountry Wildlife Photography Centre

Westcountry Wildlife Photography Centre

The Westcountry Wildlife Photography Centre is a unique facility, home to a splendid collection of native British species in naturally landscaped enclosures offering an unparalleled opportunity to film or photograph a broad range of wildlife subjects with relative ease. 

The facility is owned and managed by Derek Gow, a leading expert in native species reintroductions and the rewilding movement. 

We are located in the beautiful landscape of the River Tamar valley near the town of Launceston on the border of Devon and Cornwall. Natural wildlife is abundant in the region with well established populations of red and roe deer, badgers, foxes and otters. Barn owls and ravens are common together with a range of smaller bird species such as meadow pipits, goldfinches, linnets and yellowhammers. There is a broad butterfly compliment and the ancient hedge banks in spring offer delightful displays of wildflowers.

As well as this stunning natural scenery there are excellent pubs offering a good range of real Ales and locally sourced food. There is a wide variety of local accommodation available from homely farmhouse bed and breakfasts to high quality hotels or idyllic caravan sites.
