Dartmoor Zoo

Dartmoor zoo tigerSet in 33 acres of beautiful woodland with some stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Dartmoor Zoological Park is a unique family owned zoo with a fantastic collection of animals.

 

Formerly known as Dartmoor Wildlife Park, the zoo was purchased by the Mee family and, following major refurbishment work, reopened in July 2007.

 

The animals here include tigers, lions, jaguar, linx and cheetah (the largest collection of big cats in the region), bears, wolves, tapir, capybara, racoons, meerkats, monkeys, a fantastic collection of bugs and reptiles and much more.

Our Education Centre is manned by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. The animals in the centre include a fascinating varietry of stick insects, a great collection of snakes, tortoises, bearded dragons gerbils, poison dart frogs and gekkos, many of which feature in Close Encounters. The team also provides an excellent education programme for schools both at the zoo and as an outreach service.

We work very hard to ensure that the development of the zoo does not have an adverse effect on the beautiful woodland environment which makes it quite unique among zoos. As a consequence we have plenty of open spaces for the kids to run free and visitors are very welcome to bring a picnic and simply enjoy the surroundings.

 
Kents cavern

Kents Cavern is a spectacular natural cave on the coast of south Devon. The cave is only a short walk from the beach and the beautiful South West Coast Path. It is easy to access by foot, by coach and public transport and is open for organised school visits all year.

Undoubtedly Kents Cavern is one of Britain's most special caves. The incredible geology and rich archaeological heritage of the cave has been astounding scientists and visitors alike for centuries. Kents cavern

Records show the mysteries of the caves have been enticing explorers to venture into their depths since 1571. However, archaeological evidence and research reveals that people and animals have been visiting the caves for hundreds of thousands of years.

 
National Marine Aquarium

The National Marine Aquarium was the first aquarium in the United Kingdom to be set up solely for the purpose of education, conservation and research. It remains Britain's foremost aquarium and in the six years it has been open it has attracted over two million visitors through its doors and thousands of enquiries by letter, telephone, fax and email.

The National Marine Aquarium is now firmly established as a source of reliable and accurate information and is a regular adviser to many newspaper, magazine, radio and television projects - the BBC's 'Blue Planet' Series is perhaps the best known.

With the world's oceans facing ever more threats from our activities it is important to understand the vast stretches of water that cover 70% of our planet. We exploit them for mineral, power and food - we take but we give little back, we treat the sea as a huge treasure chest that will always provide.

We dump our waste from homes, industry and agriculture, and pollute the waters directly or via the rivers that feed the oceans. We regard the seas as a huge carpet under which we can sweep our unwanted rubbish - out of sight, out of mind.

From Dolphins to Seals, Kingfishers to Buzzards, Herons and Egrets, the wildlife is superb.
