5 1 1 Map North Devon Detail

The core of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve is the Braunton Burrows dune system. The marine area of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve extends over 1500 km² of primarily sedimentary habitats and includes the Lundy Island Marine Nature Reserve, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

Tourism is a very important source of income for the local community, and fishing contributes to both the economy and the cultural heritage of the area.
