Next week we’re delighted to welcome Ellie Coleman to the NHSN team to help us reach, engage and inspire more people. A local naturalist passionate about the natural history of our region, you’ll be seeing lots more of Ellie over the weeks and months ahead. For now, find out more about Ellie in her own words below.
In our time of climate and ecological emergency, it has never been more important to inspire people to appreciate, understand and protect the natural world. As volunteers, trustees and staff begin to implement NHSN’s 10-year plan, Action for North East Nature, we have set an ambitious target of engaging 25,000 people each year with local nature. To do this, we need to make sure we are sharing the wonder of North East nature with more people, reaching new communities and spreading the word further than ever before.
