Our response to Coronavirus

The health and wellbeing of the public, volunteers and staff are of utmost importance to Ulster Wildlife, and we have therefore been keeping a close eye on government advice in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

As such, we are cancelling all events for March and April 2020 and scheduled volunteer group activities. We will also not be registering any new volunteers during this time. We will keep this under review and will post regular updates here and via our social media channels.

Our nature reserves remain open and provide excellent places to unwind and take in the fresh air away from crowds. During this difficult time, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection with the natural world. Find your local nature reserve

Many of our office staff will now be working from home and this will be the normal working practice until the current emergency passes. This will make it more difficult to respond promptly to telephone queries, so please contact us via email where possible info@ulsterwildlife.org

Stay close to nature

If you are unable to make it to a local nature reserve, then time noticing nature in your garden or other outdoor space can also help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing.

We’ll also be sharing activities for families to enjoy through our websites and social media channels. Do look out for more in the coming days.

We would not be able to carry out the important work we do for people and nature without our supporters and we thank you all for your continued support during these exceptional times – stay safe out there.
