Curlews are in crisis: once a common sight they are now one of the world's most threatened birds. Curlew Action is working in Britain and Ireland and with partners overseas to save them.

Welcome to Curlew Action

The Eurasian Curlew, Numenius arquata, was once a common sight across Ireland and the UK and their distinctive calls could be heard along coasts and across farmland, in the lowlands and uplands.

Today, widespread changes to our countryside have seen their numbers dramatically decline, especially over the last 40 years. In Southern Ireland curlews have decreased by over 90%, in Wales by over 80% and on average we have lost 60% throughout England and Scotland since the 1980s.

All this is happening as society is becoming ever more detached from the natural world, we are less connected to nature than at any other time in history. This has to change.

We are supporting curlew conservation across Britain and Ireland, and beyond, by providing practical help, raising awareness, increasing natural history education and by building the relationships needed to give curlews a future.
