Wilderness | Exmoor
is one of the UK's great wilderness locations.
Within its 267 square miles
there are open moorlands, wooded valleys and some of the most dramatic sea cliffs
in the country.
Exmoor is home to some of Britain's biggest and most impressive
mammals including the Exmoor Pony and Red Deer.
Wilderness locations are good places to spot animals
and plants which prefer to live in remote upland habitats with little human interference.
- Get out and about to enjoy nature watching
in wilderness areas. Take some top tips from the Nature's Calendar TV team.
