gcse in natural history confirmed
Our Director, Mary Colwell, has been campaigning for 11 years for a GCSE in Natural History. On the 21st of April 2022, the department of education announced that this new GCSE will be introduced to schools in September 2025. This is a huge achievement and everyone here at Curlew Action would like to thank Mary for all her hard work in turning this into a reality.

Ground nesting birds
It's nesting season! From March-July we need to be extra careful to protect nests. Curlews nest on the ground and so are particularly vulnerable to disturbance from walkers, cyclists and inquisitive pooches. Let's work together to make sure curlews have a successful nesting season by keeping to paths and having dogs on leads in nesting areas.
We ran a competition to create Curlew Action's official Ground Nesting Birds sign and here are our two winners! Thank you to everyone who entered. Please download one (or both!) of these signs, share them on social media and put them up on billboards near you to protect your local ground nesting birds.
If you would like a physical copy of these signs please email Ellen, all you need to do is donate for postage.
