Apply for an Award  NYMA runs an annual award scheme which recognises contributions to conservation (natural or cultural).  

President’s Award - 2018 
The President’s Award supports research which contributes to the body of knowledge on the North York Moors. Awards cover archaeology, social or economic history (or current issues), and the environment (natural or built). The research can be at the planning or implementation stage and applicants can be students, academics, members of local interest groups, or individual researchers.  
In 2018 the prize was split between two very good applications.  
Carol Wilson for publication of her guide to the wildflowers of Westerdale (2018) 
Thornton-le-Dale History Society for research into the history of the village (2018) 
Fylingdale moorland birds study 
Adders and their habitat  
Moorland peat and vegetation survey 
Study of Barn Owl pellets 
Win £500 for your conservation work! 
The winner of the 2019 Conservation Award is Whitby Naturalists' Club for their highly successful 'Buckthorn for Brimstones' project, which extends the range of this lovely butterly northwards. Congratulations! And thanks to Wendy Halliday for the photo below of a Brimstone nectaring on burdock.
