Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's Mission: Creating Living Landscapes and securing Living Seas in Yorkshire

Our purpose is to: Lead the way in achieving our vision of a Yorkshire rich in wildlife for everyone through pursuing our mission of creating Living Landscapes and securing Living Seas in Yorkshire

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust works in partnership with many landowners and businesses across Yorkshire in towns, cities and the wider countryside. Using our existing network of more than 95 nature reserves as a cornerstone, Yorkshire Wildlife Trusts' recovery plan for the county's wildlife and fragmented habitats, known as 'A Living Landscape', is being achieved through restoring, recreating and reconnecting large areas of wildlife habitat, helping to safeguard the ecosystems that we depend on for so much.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is also working with other local Wildlife Trusts to protect the UK’s marine environment and secure 'Living Seas'. We are involved with many marine conservation projects around the UK, often surveying and collecting vital data on the state of our seas.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust runs a wide range of projects focused on protecting and enhancing Yorkshire's wild places, all under the framework of our Living Landscapes and Living Seas. The Trust also works to introduce people to their local environment through volunteering and community projects.
