We hope you’ve had a brilliant start to 2022.
We’ve been taking stock as we mark 18 months since launching our mission to suppport NEW vital grassroots nature regeneration projects in Devon.
Our vision is to protect and restore at least 30% of land, rivers, and sea in Devon ‘for nature’ by 2030, and every project we fund moves us closer to this goal.
Nature-based Solutions tackle both the climate and nature crises – providing positivity, joy, and HOPE in these challenging times.
Stand-out DEF examples include:
- the wonderful sight of Beavers returning to Devon’s waterways;
- the inspiring number of farmers switching to Regenerative Agriculture;
- the prospect of a thriving new Seaweed Farming economy for coastal communities.
Since our launch in summer 2020, DEF has supported a total of 22 grassroots projects to address the climate and nature emergencies in Devon, awarding more than £280,000 of grants.
We’ve compiled an infographic summarising the impact we’ve had so far:
