At the start of this month we joined the Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT) for our 6 month placement. The DWT is a branch of The Wildlife Trusts charity organisation which runs multiple projects intended to protect and improve the natural environment. In liaison with landowners, developers and farmers, DWT ensures that all parties remain environmentally conscious in their actions. Our placement is based within the North Devon Nature Improvement Area (NIA) project where we assist the team with their individual projects through conducting surveys, analysing data, writing reports and meeting with landowners.
