North Yorkshire Police

Amazing news – Operation Seabird, which was launched to protect seabirds and sea mammals on the East Coast of East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire, has only gone and won a prestigious national award!

The UK National Wildlife Crime Unit awarded Operation Seabird the Wildlife Crime Partner Operation of the Year award for 2021.

All credit must go to the amazing Rural Task Force who have worked tirelessly to work with partners in North Yorkshire Police, Lincolnshire Police, the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), RSPCA, RSPB, the local authorities of the East Riding and North East Lincolnshire along with many other partners and charities, to protect our coastline’s seabirds and marine mammals from persecution and disturbance.

Inspector Jon Powell said: “What an incredible and very well-earned award. The team has worked so hard to get the operation off the ground and for it to be taken up around the country by other forces is praise in itself for their hard work.
