See all the good work being done
Every pledge that is created in the Pledge for Nature section of this website creates a green ‘pledge pin’ which is then placed on the pledge map below. Get inspired today by interacting with the map to see what other people are doing in the North Devon Biosphere, perhaps even in your area.
Once you are ready to create your pledge, simply read more about how pledges work below and complete the Create a Pledge online form: it takes < 1 minute!
KEY: Click on the top left toolbar to see different pledge types.
The grey area shows the extent of the North Devon UNESCO Biosphere.
This is the focus of our project, but if you would like to submit a Pledge outside this area, please feel free!

More Community Action
Protect for the future
Over the coming years, with the help of our conservation partners, we will be promoting seasonal activities to tackle the most pressing problems. We need your help to make it happen! So we are inviting individuals, community groups, schools, businesses and particularly farmers to pledge to tackle priority issues for nature’s recovery.
5 steps to make all the difference
Choose your Activity
To start creating your pledge today, start by choosing an activity from the options above that suits your nature interests. You can create multiple pledges today but one-at-a-time by using the form.
Create a Pledge
Once you have decided what activity you would like to do, simply fill in the simple form on the Create a Pledge page. The more data you supply, the more good we can do. It takes < 1 minute to complete.
We will Review your Pledge
Once you have created your pledge and submitted the online form, our keen team will review your pledge and approve it within 48 hours so please bear with us.
View your Pledge on our Map
Once approved, your pledge will appear as a pin on our Pledge Map. If you have submitted multiple pledges, you will see multiple pledge pins on the map (nice work!).
Complete+Share your Pledge
Naturally, we would like as many people as possible to join the movement to Pledge for Nature. You can help by sharing your individual Pledge Page to your social media channels & encourage others to do the same. Thank you!

Every month we like to review the brilliant pledges tand events that have happened. This month we had Earth Day (theme 'restore our earth'), we visited Braunton to give out house martin nest cup materials and wildflower seeds and we have helped to support a new community rewilding project in South Molton. Barnstaple in Bloom also organised a brilliant 'Tidy the Taw' event. This month we have a special guest writer Bethany Lee (volunteer) who has written a section about how to enjoy the sunshine in an environmental responsible manner which ties in well with the Devon wide Naturally Healthy May campaign!
