Belfast Harbour is making wildlife its business by investing in the work of local nature conservation charity, Ulster Wildlife which has recently relocated to the Harbour Estate.

Belfast Harbour is the latest in a growing number of businesses who are standing up for nature in Northern Ireland by lending their support to the charity through its Corporate Membership scheme.

David Knott, Compliance Manager for Belfast Harbour said:

“We are thrilled to be renewing our commitment, once again, to help protect Ulster’s wildlife. Belfast Harbour is dedicated to developing a positive relationship with the harbour community and we look forward to working with Ulster Wildlife to create plans for a wildflower meadow on the estate to help bees, butterflies and birds thrive and provide a colourful space for everyone who works here."

Presenting Belfast Harbour with their corporate membership certificate, Dawn Miskelly, Operations Director at Ulster Wildlife:

“We are delighted to welcome back on board Belfast Harbour and look forward to working together to help improve space for nature within the estate and beyond. The support we receive from corporate members is vital in our work to protect endangered species, manage wild places as havens for wildlife, and inspire everyone to care about nature on their doorstep. We hope other businesses will follow Belfast Harbour’s lead and help us do even more for the benefit of local people and wildlife.”

Ulster Wildlife has developed corporate partnerships with a range of businesses in Northern Ireland – from small family companies to major multinationals.

From becoming a corporate member to sponsoring a project, or arranging an employee volunteering day, there are many ways businesses can play their part and make a difference to Northern Ireland’s wildlife.
