Nature/Wildlife/Animal Lovers

This is a group for anyone who has an interest in nature, wildlife or animals and would like to meet like-minded people to chat with and get to know. I find connecting with nature and wildlife extremely therapeutic and can help relieve depression/anxiety.

Hi, my name is ilanna. I am 25 living in Bradford, don't have any friends close by so came here looking for likeminded people living in Leeds/ Bradford area. If you are interested please join :D

Is Anybody Here From Leeds? In or Around?

It would be good to see how many people are local to Leeds here, maybe we could start a chat and see where things go? If it's successful perhaps we could start to arrange occasional meet-ups in the area.
