Predator Control Appeal

Urgent research appeal - please help

ControlappealAll those who work in the countryside know the threat that predation causes to the survival rates of many of our beloved birds and other species of wildlife. Whether it’s lapwing or pheasants, curlew or red grouse - the impact of predation is there to see.

The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is undertaking three research projects to investigate how controlling fox, squirrel and corvid numbers can give threatened birds a better chance of survival.

This work will also put the facts in front of policymakers, providing pragmatic, workable solutions to ensure effective management of our countryside for game and wildlife.

Your support gives game and farmland birds a fighting chance against the harsh reality of predation
