Explains how the council works with others.
Partnership working is an essential part of conserving wildlife, which does not recognise the administrative boundaries that we set, such as those of the council area. For example, the Wolds stretches across the boundaries of the East Riding into Ryedale District and Scarborough Borough so working with these areas is important to conserve the wildlife of this important landscape.
Wildlife is not just restricted to nature reserves and so working with private landowners is key to conserve and enhance our natural heritage. The council has a small biodiversity team but we rely on the expertise and enthusiasm of local volunteers and community groups, which we work with through the East Riding of Yorkshire Biodiversity Partnership.
To help with this partnership working the council is involved with a number of groups and partnerships.
