The South Devon AONB Unit has been awarded a £220,900 development grant by The National Lottery Heritage Fund as initial support for its multi partner 'Life on the Edge' programme to help restore thriving populations of some of the UK's rarest insects living along the South Devon Coast between Berry Head and Wembury.
The award to the partnership led by the AONB together with Buglife, The National Trust and Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust has been made possible by National Lottery players. It will work with residents, parish councils, schools and landowners to protect and restore precious coastal wildlife and connect communities with nature.
Project hotspots include three in the Totnes constituency (Bolt Head to Bolt Tail, Prawle Point to Start Point, and Brownstone to Berry Head) as well as Wembury and The Erme (Mothecome to Holbeton).
