Our conservation work

We work to support and facilitate the conservation and enhancement of the natural environment, wildlife and heritage of Dartmoor. This includes helping people to understand and enjoy Dartmoor's natural and human heritage in a sustainable way.

We carry out and support research and undertake practical work to benefit wildlife, heritage and people, including special project work. We also give advice both in-house (particularly to colleagues dealing with planning, trees and woodlands, land management, and recreation and tourism issues) and to members of the public (including landowners).

We also work with other Dartmoor based organisations and volunteers to help achieve our conservation aims. You can support our conservation work through Donate for Dartmoor.
