North York Moors National Park

The North York Moors is a special place. History and nature have combined to give  an amazingly vibrant landscape, rich in heritage and wildlife – an inspiring place to visit, live, work or study. The National Park Authority looks after this beautiful corner of Yorkshire, helping to protect and conserve it, while encouraging people to enjoy and understand how special it is. To find out more about the area click NYMNP.

Yorkshire Coast Nature Director Richard Baines is the current Turtle Dove Project Survey Officer (voluntary). Richard and business partner Steve Race took part in Turtle Dove surveys in 2016. 1km² survey plots were monitored over three visits between April and July. The results of this data will help conservation charities focus action to help conserve this scarce and declining bird. The 2016 survey project was such a success we are continuing in 2017.  

YCN Director Steve Race donates images to the NYMNP of many types of wildlife so they can promote the areas heritage to the public and fun ding organisations.
