South Devon is blessed with a wonderful coastline and with rocky shores many of which are within easy reach with public transport. These shores contain a marvellous range of extraordinary and exotic marine animals and plants that live and compete in the inter-tidal zone. The variety and extraordinary ecology of this local environment can match that of anywhere in the world.
The Shores of south Devon is a newly formed (Jan 2020) interest group that focusses on the rocky shores along the coast of south Devon. We hold monthly meetings where expert speakers will talk on a relevant topic, and field trips (surveys and safaris) to our local shores.
The group’s aims are
1) To celebrate and promote interest in the varied and highly diverse shores of the south Devon coast
2) To bring together people with a common interest in their local marine environment to
a) learn about and share knowledge of
c) increase their enjoyment of
the fascinating natural history near them
3) To do this through
a) regular expert talks
b) surveys and shore trips, including Citizen Science projects and other external activities
c) links to other interest groups, professional and scientific bodies
Talks are held at Teign Corinthian Yacht Club Eastcliff clubhouse at the northern end of the promenade in Teignmouth. Postcode TQ14 8SH. Find out more about the club here.
We have made a video of the creatures of the shores between Dawlish Warren and Shaldon which you can see here
