Seaton Jurassic, Devon Wildlife Trust’s flagship visitor centre, is delighted to welcome its latest visitor, a pliosaur, thanks to the generosity of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme .
Situated on the patio directly outside the Taste of the West cafe, the pliosaur helps unlock the secrets of the Jurassic seas of 200 million years ago when Seaton was underwater. As well as providing a safe area for children to play it will also start to take people on the journey about this incredible area and then, as a Devon Wildlife Trust centre, learning how we can help protect our marine environment today.
This incredible marine reptile is particularly important to the area and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, as Mary Anning discovered the first specimen in Lyme Regis in the 1820’s and so we were delighted that the Tesco Bags of Help scheme enabled us to commission this bespoke model.
So join us on an interactive journey of discovery and learning, starting with our pliosaur. Seaton Jurassic is open every day until Christmas eve and has a host of events and activities on over half term including incredible live history shows on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th – check the website for details.
