The local Dartmoor ponies help with the conservation work

A group of nine Dartmoor ponies are helping the rangers with countryside management on the cliffs around the Trust's lands. The ponies help break up thick grass and scrub in difficult to reach areas and help keep scrub from growing back. They can often be seen from the South Devon coast path. Look out for them next time you visit.
