The Yorkshire Rewilding Network (YRN) aims to bring together anyone in the region who has an interest in rewilding — to inspire one another, share knowledge and experience, and work towards a brighter, more sustainable future for all inhabitants… be they creatures great or small.

Launched in 2020, YRN is free and open to everyone — whether you are encouraging wildlife to return to a wilder space in your back yard or local community, or you’re embarking on a largescale rewilding project at a Yorkshire estate. 

Yorkshire Rewilding Network is a charity, governed by a Board of Trustees, supported by a committee, freelance officers and a team of volunteers. 


People are at the heart of this organisation and there are lots of different ways to become part of the network. 

Why not join the Yorkshire Rewilding Forum and connect directly with rewilders near you, or add your wild space or rewilding project to the Yorkshire rewilding map!

Visit the Yorkshire Rewilding Network websiteto find out more about their exciting projects and how to get involved.


In summer 2023, the network hosted Yorkshire’s first Rewilding Festival and brought hundreds of people together to connect with nature and rewilding through the arts, through debate and discussion, and through networking. 

YRN would like to see as many people from as many different backgrounds at their events, so they try to make them affordable and accessible wherever possible. From free online webinars in the winter to rewilding site visits across the region during the summer, find out more at Yorkshire Rewilding Network’s upcoming events.
