Join the conversation

In Spring 2022, we ran community workshops and online listening activities to explore how Wild Ingleborough can provide benefits for local people, communities and businesses, while welcoming more diverse groups of visitors to enjoy this popular area of the Dales.

We want to hear your views and ideas!

The Ingleborough area supports a range of exciting wildlife. We hope that increasing the area of natural habitat, together with some targeted action, can bring about the recovery of rare species.
