The Curlew Recovery Partnership is a new, exciting and transformative initiative, bringing together all those with an interest in curlew conservation, including land managers, farmers, gamekeepers, policymakers and researchers. We are joining forces to help secure the future of one of England’s most iconic and threatened species, the Eurasian curlew.
Urgent action is needed. The curlew is arguably the most pressing bird conservation priority in the UK, where nearly half the breeding population has been lost over the last 25 years and where range contraction has seen curlews disappear from many traditional sites.
While we broadly understand the main causes of curlew declines, we know that accommodating the needs of curlews in today’s landscapes is not straightforward. To implement effective action to recover curlew populations, we need to better understand from people working on the ground what are the main obstacles hindering management for curlews and which elements of agri-environment schemes or policy support are inadequate.
Please help us work towards better advice and support mechanisms for curlew by sharing your experience through our survey.
