After five years of managing Seaton Jurassic, Devon Wildlife Trust has taken the tough decision not to continue in its role as the visitor attraction’s operator. The unique and unprecedented challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic combined with the need to undertake substantial, costly renovations to the attraction’s exhibitions, is at the heart of this decision.

Devon Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive, Harry Barton, said:

We’re very proud of what we have achieved at Seaton Jurassic over the past five years. The team of staff and volunteers we’ve built have done great work establishing the centre. Since opening in 2016, 250,000 visitors have come to explore Seaton Jurassic’s unique interpretation of the story of life and its evolution from the Jurassic era to the present day.

Seaton Jurassic will remain closed after the current lockdown restrictions ease. However, a number of open days and one-off events are planned for the summer. Do keep checking this website for details.
