The South Yare Wildlife Group grew out of the Rockland Wildlife Group. In 2011, it expanded to include the area of Norfolk immediately to the south east of Norwich bounded by the River Yare to the north and east, the River Chet to the south and River Tas to the west.

The group has the following objectives:

1. To promote for the benefit of the public the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment of the South Yare area.

2. To advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment of the South Yare area.

It pursues these through a range of activities such as:
◾Regular meetings
◾Walks
◾Social events
◾Active conservation work
◾Working with local stakeholders
◾Recording and surveying
◾Educational events
