We work with internal and external partners at various levels through a number of partnerships whose ambition is to bring together people who care about the environment and want to improve it now and for the future.
Existing partnerships include:
Yorkshire Marine Nature Partnership
Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this emerging partnership will encourage, and provide a vehicle for, collaboration amongst a wide range of partners in order to support, manage, understand and care for Yorkshire's unique marine and coastal environment.
The partnership will facilitate new links and identify shared priorities with wider stakeholders in the heritage, tourism, industrial, cultural and public health sectors, whilst also providing new opportunities for those already active in the coastal environment.
Hull and East Yorkshire Local Nature Partnership
The Hull and East Yorkshire Local Nature Partnership works to maximise investment in the natural environment to create benefits for people and the economy.
We will make sure that nature’s inherent value, and the value of the free services it provides to the economy and the people who live here, is taken into account in local decisions.

East and North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership
Waterways are important for many reasons, including navigation, biodiversity, heritage, flood risk management, freight, tourism and recreation. This diversity of function means that managing and improving our waterways can often be a challenge.
The Waterways Partnership encourages water managers, regulators, users and other stakeholders to work cooperatively so we can ensure that our waterways contribute to local economic, environmental and community wellbeing.

Flamborough Head European Marine Site Management Scheme
The Flamborough and Filey coast is internationally-recognised as an important place for marine species and habitats. The sheer cliffs rising out of the North Sea host the UK's largest mainland breeding seabird colony during the summer months. Flamborough's distinctive chalk headland supports life below the waves too, with reef, kelp forests and caves providing food and shelter for a diverse range of species.
The management scheme exists to bring together organisations with a statutory obligation to manage and care for this unique area, working closely with local conservation organisations and national experts to ensure the protection afforded to these unique wildlife and habitats is upheld.
