Exmoor is home to an amazing variety of Wildlife
With its spectacular moorland, rich oak woodland, clear streams and dramatic coastline, Exmoor has a great variety of habitats. These diverse habitats provide homes for a vast array of species, including majestic red deer, elusive otters and some of the UK’s rarest butterflies and bats. Exmoor is so important for wildlife that almost a third of the National Park is protected under UK and European law.
