Meadow Links

Over the last fifty years 97% of meadows in the UK have been lost, putting hundreds of species of wildflowers and plants, bees, birds and other native wildlife at risk. Meadow Links aims to restore hay meadow habitats along our ecological networks – creating wildflower superhighways that will help wildlife move across the Yorkshire Dales landscape.

Meadow Links is delivered in partnership with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) Parish Wildlife Project, Buglife’s national
B-Lines project and Natural England.

The project is also supported by funding from: D’Oyley Carte, Banister Charitable Trust and John Spedan Lewis Foundation.

Conservation work undertaken by Meadow Links will be mapped and recorded to help provide a clear picture of what work has been done on the ground to create a cohesive and resilient network for wildlife across the Yorkshire Dales, and highlight where further action needs to be taken.

Meadow Links is delivered in partnership with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Buglife and Natural England.

One in five British wildflower species are under threat. Help save our wildflower meadows and support the hundreds of species of wildlife they are home to.
