Nature reserve near Exmouth featured in DWT's new publication
A NEW book featuring some of Devon Wildlife Trust’s top beauty spots has been released this month by the Trust.
Devon Wildlife Trust – Nature Reserves, is the result of nearly 50 year’s work by the charity caring for the county’s environment.
Portraits of 20 of the Trust’s most stunning nature reserves, including Bystock, north of Exmouth, are portrayed in landscape and wildlife photographs and many of these images have never been seen before.
The book’s author is the Trust’s communications co-ordinator, Stephen Hussey.
He said: ”Devon contains some of the most spectacular wildlife and wild places in the UK, Devon Wildlife Trust has the responsibility of caring for these.
“This book shows just what a special place our county is and the work that we do as a charity in looking after it.”
South West Water has sponsored the book and its chief executive, Chris Loughlin said the company had supported the Trust’s work for many years.
“It is a pleasure to sponsor this beautiful book, celebrating some of our region’s best-loved nature reserves,” he said.
“By working in partnership with organisations such as the Devon Wildlife Trust, we hope to play our part in preserving and protecting the environment for future generations to enjoy.”
