People have been forever fascinated by the natural world with many a creature being immortalised in books, songs and poetry. Children are captivated by other living things and grown men and women often spend a lifetime's work in the study and preservation of the animal kingdom. The first forerunners of the many wildlife organisations and groups we are familiar with today such as the RSPB and the Wildlife Trusts began to emerge in the 18th century, and nowadays there isn't a single living organism on the planet that isn't  the subject of some society or group of enthousiasts.

The simple fact is, we human beings like to share our experiences of nature with other people, and Yorkshire folk are no diferent! On these pages you'll find information about the people involved in the wildlife of Yorkshire and nationwide wildlife links.
