Protecting wildlife in Yorkshire

Together with our supporters and volunteers, we are committed to creating a Yorkshire rich in wildlife for everyone. From saving our wildlife and wild places to bringing people closer to nature, we have a vision of a wilder future.

Wild Ingleborough

Wild Ingleborough is a vision for a wilder future - a flagship nature restoration project showcasing an alternative future for Yorkshire's upland landscapes.

Alongside WWF, Natural England, the University of Leeds, the United Bank of Carbon and the Woodland Trust, we're hoping to transform this pocket of the Yorkshire Dales into a nature-rich haven.

Yorkshire born and Yorkshire bred, our puffins belong at Flamborough Head...

For centuries, Yorkshire has been a safe haven for puffins and other seabirds. Each summer, countless seabirds gather together in huge numbers to raise their young on our steep chalk cliffs, but the global climate crisis is putting these Yorkshire born and bred puffins under threat.

We are working to protect Yorkshire’s seas and the wildlife who call them home from the impacts of the climate emergency, pollution and exploitation. Please help us to give our seas a chance.
