The Wildlife Zone

Go Wild in the Wildlife Zone

Come on down to Countryfile Live’s Wildlife Zone for all things wild! Start at t’Coast and join Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Living Seas team on a journey along the shore to learn about local marine wildlife. Have a go at our activity exploring marine pollution – can you guess how long it takes for litter to break down in the sea?

Pause at our Mindfulness Zone for a quick time-out and learn about how spending time in nature can benefit your mental health. Next, journey up to t’Town to discover how to benefit wildlife right on your doorstep. Play our fun game whose poo is whose – can you match the garden visitor to their poo? And learn all about sustainable drainage (SuDs) by building your own mini SuDs in a bottle!

Finish off at t’Peatlands and help us revegetate bare peat by throwing moss beanbags on the peatland target. And see for yourself just how crucial healthy peatlands are to help stop flooding at our hands-on demonstration. All games and demonstrations will be running all day so come and see us any time – we can’t wait to meet you!
