Yorkshire Wildlife Trust
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT) arranges local access to over 95 nature reserves throughout Yorkshire and a varied events programme so that everyone can get out and experience wild Yorkshire for themselves
People's Postcode Lottery also helps us to provide support to over 600 volunteers working in wildlife conservation throughout Yorkshire.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is a local charity which has been working for over 65 years to protect and conserve Yorkshire's wild places and wildlife for all to enjoy. Through the support of our members and volunteers we remain a local charity working for local communities and wildlife.
We see the future of wildlife conservation as a Living Landscape, which we are working to create with the support of thousands of others. Within this Living Landscape wildlife will thrive in wild places running through both rural and urban areas of Yorkshire. 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. We are also fighting for Yorkshire's Living Seas – working together to restore the North Sea back to good health.
Our work inspires many children, families and others as we help reconnect them with their local environment. Head of Fundraising and Communications Jonathan Leadley said:
“We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who plays the People’s Postcode Lottery. The significant funding we receive goes towards enhancing our Nature Reserves for wildlife, inspiring and educating children through Wildlife Watch and supporting our Marine Awareness and conservation work.”
