Keep abreast of the initiatives of local organisations and the work they are doing to protect the Devon wildlife and nature. This includes projects to support bee populations, to protect Devon verges, to keep our beaches clean, etc. To find out more click on the images to be taken to the independent websites.

The North Devon UNESCO Biosphere is planning to launch a ground-breaking local initiative to engage north Devon’s communities in nature’s recovery.
We are extremely concerned by rapid declines in the quality of some habitats and populations of some of our key species like breeding cuckoos, lapwings and curlews in our farmland, salmon, sea trout and freshwater pearl mussels in the Taw and Torridge river systems, and even commoner species like hedgehogs, swallows and house martins, wildflowers and insects. First we need to raise at least £10,000 through a Crowdfunder to match an application we are making to the National Lottery (we’ve already passed the first stage).
