Nature Recovery Sheffield

Help us make it happen Donate to FoD

In partnership with Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust

Nature is in trouble. As well as a climate crisis, our wildlife is also facing a critical emergency, with one in four species in the UK now at threat of extinction.

The issues causing this nationally are very similar to those we see in Sheffield; our wildlife is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation from development, degradation from intensive land management and wildlife persecution, invasive species and of course climate change - which is amplifying the impact of these threats.

Nature Recovery Sheffield are a group of local organisations who recognise that as well as a climate emergency, we need to declare a nature emergency, to ensure that climate solutions are also good ecological solutions, and build a strategy for action to achieve nature’s recovery in Sheffield. But to get there, we will need others to join us.

Join our event to find out more about why we need to do this, what our strategy for success looks like and how you can get involved.

Liz Ballard, CEO at Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust

Dr Cathy Rhodes, Diocesan Environment Officer at Diocese of Sheffield
