Our work for wildlife
We have ongoing projects from Tees to Tyne to protect, restore and create wild places.
It has never been a more important to aid the recovery of wildlife on land and at sea. The focus of our work is to restore Durham’s threatened habitats and species, and reconnect people with the natural world around them. Find out more about what is happening where by browsing our projects.
