Conservation and Research
For 191 years, NHSN members have carried out conservation and research across the North East – this is how they do it.
Conservation across the North East
NHSN members are passionate about protecting, celebrating and studying North East nature. Thanks to your support, enthusiastic volunteers are able to make a difference for wildlife, from the Tweed to the Tees by:
- Encouraging and supporting citizen science to further understanding of North East nature.
- Protecting and caring for our nature reserve at Gosforth in Newcastle.
- Campaigning to prevent wildlife loss from inappropriate development, in the city and beyond.
- Carrying out conservation research across the North East.
- Funding small-scale conservation and research projects.
- Participating in the various committees concerned with the protection of the region’s wildlife and geology.
Working in collaboration
In carrying out these activities volunteers work in partnership with the other conservation organisations in the region.
