East Devon AONB’s annual event – ‘making connections’

“… for the benefit of biodiversity, our communities, and our landscape.”

.

The East Devon AONB held its annual bash for its Ambassadors earlier in the week:

At this year’s AONB Ambassador Event we’ll be looking at how we are making connections – and connecting others – with nature across the East Devon AONB, for the benefit of biodiversity, our communities, and our landscape.

Find out more about the #SavingSpecialSpecies project and the biodiversity we are working to protect:

As part of our Commitment to Nature, we are expanding our conservation work with the ambitious aim of protecting 8 special species – our elusive 8 – and bringing benefits to many more. Whether a bat, butterfly, or tree each species has been chosen for its connection with East Devon and its status as one of our most threatened species.
