Wondering what you can do to help?
Curlew numbers are declining all around the British Isles, and many of our wonderful supporters want to do more to help their local curlews. We offer some suggestions about the best ways to get involved.
Keep dogs on the lead
During breeding season, it is essential that dogs are kept on the lead when anywhere that curlews may be nesting. This will minimise the danger that dogs may disturb nests, either destroying eggs themselves or making chicks more vulnerable to predation by nearby animals. If you live near a nesting site, we encourage you to put up signs and inform others to be careful with their dogs.
One of the key problems facing curlews is the destruction of their habitats. As humans, we can choose to either continue causing this problem, or contribute to making it better by looking after our environment. We believe the answer is pretty clear!
One of the most important parts of our mission is getting the public excited about curlews and conserving nature. Without this, our conservation efforts would be wasted. If you would like to get involved in our outreach work, consider joining our ambassador network or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Curlew Action is a small charity with big goals: we want to prevent the curlew population crisis. And we can't do it without your support. By fundraising for us, you will not only bring in funds allowing us to continue our crucial conservation and outreach work, but also help share the message. We've got lots of marketing materials which you can download over on our Support Us page.
Host an event
The more events we hold, the more we can convey our important message. Even a tiny local event could inspire one person to campaign for wildlife, and they could make all the difference!
