Give Seas a Chance

Yorkshire’s seas were once full of wildlife but due to decades of human neglect and harm, they are falling silent and empty. Our expert marine team are working against the clock to save, restore and enhance our beautiful, essential seas and incredible wildlife.

We have ten years to turn the tide or Yorkshire’s seas could fall silent forever

Help us turn the tide

30 by 30

Our wildlife is disappearing at an alarming rate and the threat of climate catastrophe is a constant worry. That's why we're calling for at least 30% of our land and sea to be connected and protected for nature’s recovery by 2030.

Nature has given us so much, it’s now our turn to give back.

Help create a wilder future today

Thanks to your help and support we were able to protect this amazing, ecologically diverse site from development.

APPEAL

Wildlife Recovery Fund

Yorkshire’s wild places are buzzing, rustling and chirping with the sounds of spring. During these strange, troubling and uncertain times, a little wildness brings us hope, inspiration, peace and energy. 

Due to the devastating outbreak of Covid-19, we have had to pause and halt some of the most urgent support that Yorkshire’s wildlife and wild places need. The full effects on Yorkshire's amazing wildlife are not yet certain, but these are vital funds which should be helping the wildlife and wild places we treasure to recover.

APPEAL

Give Peat A Chance

In Spring 2019, we fundraised for our Yorkshire peatlands. Our peatlands are a home for precious wildlife, an incredible carbon store and form some of our most iconic landscapes.
