Our Projects

Bringing people together, working in an atmosphere of respect and cooperation.

Information Exchange

Sharing knowledge, experience, and best practice is at the heart of conservation, and it is essential to work alongside  landowners, farmers, and policy makers.  Through public lectures and meetings we bring people together to discuss what everyone can do to help, and we work in an atmosphere of respect and cooperation.

For the latest see our events page.

The Curlew Fieldworkers Toolkit

Curlew Action is assembling a Curlew Fieldworker’s Toolkit , an essential resource for people on the ground. This practical manual draws together the knowledge and experience of those working with the birds out in the field. It will be an accessible resource available to anyone who needs information about best practice and collecting useful, national data.

Fieldworker Training

The Fieldworker’s Toolkit will be launched at a Workshop in February 2020 where everyone can meet and exchange ideas and experiences. We plan to follow this up with a series of small, local meetings and videos.

Film Making

Curlew Action is making a series of short films highlighting the lives of curlews and the challenges they face around the year. These beautifully shot cameos will be filmed by renowned wildlife cameraman, John Waters. Our first film on winter curlews is already underway and highlights the need to protect the UK’s precious and unique coastal wetlands where curlews from all across Europe come to spend the winter months.

Please donate to Curlew Action to help fund these important films.

Natural History Education

British children are more removed from nature than at any other point in our history, exactly at the time when we are losing wildlife and feeling the effects of a changing climate. We need smart, capable, knowledgeable, practical people to know and understand wildlife and what it needs. In other words, we need to be nurturing the naturalists of the future – decision makers who will work for the good of all life on earth. By placing Natural History at the heart of education we will make sure all children can learn about nature throughout their education, wherever they live.
