Our Exe Estuary Forum took place on 7th February 2012 and turned out to be a big success with 100 delegates turning up on the evening. We had a number of interesting presentations about projects and news from around the Exe, including the Final Exe Disturbance Study report, tackling Jet Ski issues, a prototype for a new Marine Protected Areas mobile phone application and an introduction to the new Living with a Changing Coast (LiCCo) project.
Commissioned by the Exe Estuary Partnership, the Disturbance Study was carried out to determine the extent and nature of disturbance of wintering waterfowl from human activities on the Exe Estuary. The Final Report is now complete and available through the above link.
Our Autumn 2011 Clean Up event turned out to be another successful event, with over 130 volunteers filling a skip full of rubbish from the Exmouth Local Nature Reserve. Watch this space for next year's Clean Up events, and click on the link above to find out more!
A leaflet created by the Devon Maritime Forum which provides you with all the information that you need to begin exploring the marine environment. Contains beautiful illustrations to help with identifying marine creatures at an estuary or rock pool, and an easy to use map which shows which marine educators can be found in your area.

Located on the south coast of Devon in the UK the Exe Estuary boasts some fantastic features; it is an internationally important site for wildlife, it is the start of the Jurassic Coasts, it has blue flag beaches and it offers countless opportunities to enjoy the Estuary through recreational clubs, bird watching sites and boat trips.
The Exe is a fantastic place to explore by foot, cycle, wheel chair or, for the littler ones, pushchair with miles of pristine cycle paths that reach around the majority of the Estuary and offer some spectacular views. For an informative guide to exploring the Exe Estuary you can download a copy of the Exe Explorer from our leaflets page.
Information is available on this website about all aspects of the estuary, whether you are planning to visit and are looking for somewhere to stay or are interested to find out more about the management of the Exe Estuary.
Under our Local Information page you can find information on the commercial uses of the estuary, the wildlife and habitats on the estuary, the harbour authority, current studies and research taking place and much more.
