Here at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, we’re gearing up for the Great Yorkshire Creature Count (Saturday 19th June – Sunday 20th June 2021).  We’re on a mission to discover how many different wildlife species we can collectively record in 24 hours, and are challenging folk in every corner of Yorkshire to record what they can see from their own doorsteps.

Whether that’s looking and listening out of a window, peering into and under pots and window boxes, exploring the nooks and crannies of a terraced yard, or scouring a leafy garden – we want to know what you see and where you see it!

You can complete your challenge on a local walk too. As you pop to the shop, stretch your legs around the block or take your four-legged friend for a walk, our blog features top tips on how and where to spot as much wildlife as you can from your front door.

Make your next walk count for wildlife as well as your heart, body and mind. Read our blog here: https://www.ywt.org.uk/blog/yorkshire-wildlife-trust/step-out-your-front-door-and-count-creatures-great-and-small

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is the only charity entirely dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring Yorkshire’s wildlife and wild places.

To help protect our wildlife and wild places please:

Follow the latest government guidance on social distancing
Follow any signage on site
Stick to the paths and trails, and check if dogs are welcome or need to be on a lead.
Take your litter home, as it’s harder for us to empty bins regularly.
