Do you represent a conservation or nature group, a natural history society or recording group or a community group undertaking practical work to manage sites? We are looking to compile a resource on local conservation groups for the Connecting for Nature website, just a brief summary, perhaps a couple of paragraphs. If you can supply a suitable image or a logo for the group so much the better.
The rationale is that we want to build a hub for information on local biodiversity groups and a central point to help connect different communities, local businesses and local conservation initiatives. There is also a space for good case studies of project undertaken (complete, underway or aspiring) so that Connecting for Nature members can share good practice, ideas and learn from the experiences of others doing similar things. If we can help groups to get in touch with each other, collaborate and offer support to one another then one of our principal aims (dare I say the most important aim) of ‘Connecting for Nature’ has been realized.

Can you help by supplying some words and pictures on a local project or group? Many thanks to those individuals who have already contributed a ‘case study’ for this purpose. They are on file and ready to load up. Now that our Connecting for Nature Social Media workshop is out of the way these case studies and the menu structure of the wordpress website are high on the list of priorities.

Please email Tim on to discuss any contributions.

I work in ecology and biodiversity in North Yorkshire. I'm often found outdoors snapping nature and landscapes or spotting birds. In the garden I enjoy having my hands in the earth and striving for the perfect mix of greens and browns in my compost. As a Daddy and adopter I'm used to endless questions about the world around us, and generally have an answer up my sleeve for most things. If you spot me and my hat in real life or on social media do say hello!
