We are a local charity working for Yorkshire's wonderful wildlife and local communities.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is part of the influential UK-wide partnership of 47 Wildlife Trusts. The Trust has worked for more than 60 years to protect wildlife and wild places, and educate, influence and empower people. We manage 80 of the best sites and help others to manage theirs. Our work is helping to secure the future of many important habitats and species, which might otherwise be lost.
In only the last few years, the Trust has:

  • Created more than 60ha of dedicated reedbed for bittern, one of the UK's most endangered birds, at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve
  • Worked tirelessly to secure the future of Yorkshire's water vole populations, the mammal that the beloved 'Ratty' in Wind and the Willows was based on.
  • Restored and maintained some of the last remaining lowland heath habitat in Yorkshire
  • Enabled over 800 volunteers to take positive action for their local environment
  • Advised landowners on how to manage their land for wildlife.
  • Encouraged communities to protect and enjoy wildlife in their local area; and campaigned successfully for wildlife friendly development
  • Inspired children with natural play and wildlife watching.

We see the future of wildlife conservation as a Living Landscape - by identifying key areas to protect for wildlife, improving and joining them up across the county in partnership with other land-owners we can create an inspiring, accessible landscape which is full of wildlife and rich in opportunities for learning and sustainable economic development.
