Formed in 1989, and formally constituted on 19 April 1991, the Thorne and Hatfield Moors Conservation Forum acts as an umbrella for a wide range of like-minded organisations. Its membership is drawn from voluntary organisations such as the Wildlife Trusts and natural history societies (local and regional), and it has observers from statutory agencies and local authorities. It welcomes interest from naturalists, conservationists and academics as well as members of the public.
As its name suggests, it provides a place for debate, and the gathering and disseminating of information. In recent years, it has been forced to take on a campaigning role however, this aspect of its work has always been underpinned by sound safe science, and research, survey and monitoring remain key activities. The Forum is administered by an Executive Committee. You can find our website at thmcf.org
