Curlew Action Partners
Successful conservation requires support and collaboration between different initiatives and stakeholders. Curlew Action works with several different organisations to support curlew populations. In addition to our own projects, Curlew Action raises funds to support the practical conservation efforts of smaller curlew groups.
Curlew Country is a group based in the Shropshire Hills and Powys boarder. Founded in 2014, the group works closely with local land managers to deliver real landscape scale conservation. Nest monitoring during their first two active years revealed that no chicks survived to fully fledge in over 30 nests. Curlew Country’s pioneering work has turned this around to 60 fully fledges chicks returned to their natural environment in three years. Curlew Action supports the work of Curlew Country by donating funds. So far, Curlew Action has donated £3,000. For more information about Curlew Country see their website, www.curlewcountry.org
