This is a list of the Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) in Humberside, England. In England the body responsible for designating SSSIs is Natural England, which chooses a site because of its fauna, flora, geological or physiographical features.[1] Although the county of Humberside no longer exists, Natural England uses its former borders to mark an Area of Search.[2] As of 2012, there are 72 sites designated in this Area of Search, of which 51 have been designated due to their biological interest, 17 due to their geological interest, and 4 for both.[3]

Natural England took over the role of designating and managing SSSIs from English Nature in October 2006 when it was formed from the amalgamation of English Nature, parts of the Countryside Agency and the Rural Development Service. Natural England, like its predecessor, uses the 1974–1996 county system[4] and as such the same approach is followed here. There are four unitary authorities in the Humberside Area of Search: Kingston upon Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire cover North Humberside, and North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire cover South Humberside. The SSSI list for Lincolnshire does not include the sites on this list.

The data in the table is taken from Natural England in the form of citation sheets for each SSSI, and the County Background Datasheet for Humberside.[5]

For other counties, see List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest by Area of Search.
