Devon’s spectacular coasts, moors, rivers and woods are home to an astonishing variety of wildlife.

It is what makes our county one of the most beautiful and special places in the world.

But much of Devon is less rich in wildlife than it once was. Loss of habitat, innappropriate development, and lack of protection have all taken their toll, and there are many who don't have the chance to explore and enjoy Devon's natural beauty - even when it is right on their doorstep.
