Walkers are being asked to help a wildlife charity celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT) is organising the 20-mile Wild Devon Coastal Walk Challenge to support its work protecting wildlife in the county.
During the walk, DWT staff will help walkers identify flowers, butterflies and birds.
Dan Smith, from the trust, said: "The routes include two National Nature Reserves in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We start from the car park at Berry Head and make our way to Slapton Ley along a magnificent route which is great for coastal birds and butterflies.
"The money raised will help the charity in the coming years protect, enhance and reconnect wild areas such as these across Devon so the next 50 years will see a wealth of wildlife on your doorstep."
Walkers are being asked to raise £50 in sponsorship and pay a £10 registration fee to take part in the May 26 challenge.
