Welcome to Exmoor National Park
Situated in the south west of Britain, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles (692 square kilometers). A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Where high cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel, and cosy pubs and tearooms offer delicious local produce.
The otter Lutra lutra is one of the great conservation success stories. By the 1970's otter numbers in the UK were down to dangerously low levels, largely due to the effects of now banned pesticides. Today otters are present in all Exmoor's main watercourses, although you would be very lucky so see one of these secretive creatures. More on this species from ARKIVE
