Our conservation work

Dartmoor National Park Authority works 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 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 (especially landowners). We also carry out and support research and undertake practical work to benefit wildlife, heritage and people, including special project work.

Our conservation works team carries out specialist practical work to ensure the wildlife and heritage of the National Park is conserved and enhanced.

We also work with other Dartmoor based organisations and volunteers to help achieve our conservation aims.
