Yorkshire's Wilder wetlands90% of Britain’s wetlands have already been destroyed. This has eroded a key natural habitat that many animals rely on and is putting their future in jeopardy. We can still save the remaining wetlands that exist in Yorkshire and the wildlife that calls them home, but we need you to help.
A safe spaceWetlands offer a safe space for birds, many of which have migrated across the globe. They are also home to lots of other animals that rely on the wetlands to provide refuge as the Earth’s climate changes and this is why it is so sad to see our wetlands being damaged and disappearing from our landscape.
An Eroding NetworkDecades of habitat destruction and decline are causing a devastating and shocking loss. Animals such as water voles are being driven to extinction in the Yorkshire region because whenever a lake, pond, pool or reed bed disappears, the wetland network in the region is further eroded and gets further from being able to recover, making it harder and harder for threatened species to return.
Support the causeJoin us in protecting what little remains of Yorkshire’s wetlands, to ensure that species we all love come back from the edge of extinction and thrive in Yorkshire. Your help can make a difference, so join up with animal lovers across the region today and protect our wetland habitats.
