COVID-19 rates in Stockton-on-Tees are very high so the Government has named it, along with the rest of the North East, an Enhanced Response Area. Find out more on our Enhanced Response Area page.

The RSPB has worked in partnership with the Teesside Environmental Trust (TET) to make Saltholme a reality.

The Trust is a local charity whose aims of wildlife conservation, environmental education and regeneration, closely match those of the RSPB.
