Hull Nature Triangle
The Yorkshire Nature Triangle project is led by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and aims to raise the profile of East Yorkshire’s fantastic array of nature-tourism attractions. From The Deep in Hull, to the iconic Spurn Point and north to the puffins of Flamborough and Whitby’s whale watching, the region has a wealth of wildlife waiting to be discovered. The project works closely with conservation bodies, tourism agencies and also provides support to local businesses helping them to make the most out of this growing, worldwide market.
The University of Hull’s status as an anchor institution for the region and its passion for discovery and passing on knowledge makes it the ideal partner for The Deep’s Learning Centre. Both recognised for excellence, the University and The Deep share a commitment to engaging with our local community – helping to raise academic aspirations among young people and inspiring future generations of pioneering scientists, researchers and conservationists.
The Bondholder Scheme is a network businesses, who work together to raise the profile of the Humber.
