Besides Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, there are a number of other organisations working for wildlife in Yorkshire. Many of them are voluntary and rely on the support of local people, so why not get involved. Some of them are focussed on research, whilst others manage nature reserves for wildlife. Here are some links to a number of these sites and groups, why not check them out?
