Loving wildlife

First published in Devon

NATURE lovers in Devon are giving an alternative gift for Valentine’s Day this year – not content with a bunch of roses, they are opting for a whole acre of wildflowers in north Devon.

Devon Wildlife Trust’s Meeth Quarry nature reserve, near Hatherleigh, is a 370-acre wildlife haven and is DWT’s newest site.

The Trust has given supporters the chance to Adopt an Acre of the reserve as part of an appeal for funds to improve the recovering industrial landscape for wildlife.

Of more than 95 acres adopted so far, many were as gifts for someone special.
