GeoConservationUK has a membership of over 50 Local Geoconservation Groups, lately known as RIGS Groups (Regionally Important Geological and geomorphological Sites) across the British Isles.

GeoConservationUK exists to promote local "Geo" sites for education and public benefit and works towards a British Isles perspective, focusing on the common purposes and issues of local interest to Groups.

Government guidance uses the term Local Sites for these non-statutory sites, as distinct from the Sites of Special Scientific Interest [SSSIs] which are protected by government statute.

  • In England they are called Local Geological Sites.
  • In Scotland they are called Local Geodiversity Sites.
  • In Wales they are called Regionally Important Geodiversity Sites.
