Be part of Nidderdale's BIGGEST EVER wildlife survey and help your wildlife flourish. Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is home to spectacular, and in some cases, threatened wildlife including Curlew, Great-crested newts and Water voles. We are working with volunteers, families, naturalists, students and others to gather information on over 50 species right across the AONB, we will carefully analyse this information and what we discover will help us decide how best to look after the land in the future.
We are passionate about Nidderdale and its fantastic wildlife and we want to share that passion! We are looking for people to help us with this project. It doesn’t matter whether you know a little, are an expert or somewhere in between – there are lots of things you can do no matter what you are interested in and to what level.
The Wild Watch needs people like you to help! Please come to our wildlife events – and don’t forget to revisit the webpage as we will regularly be adding more events to the diary.Get Involved
