BTO - British Trust for Ornithology

The British Trust for Ornithology is the UK's leading bird research organisation. Our monitoring and research projects are carried out by an effective partnership of birdwatchers and professional ornithologists, the results of which inform the conservation of birds in the UK.

Charity Registration No. 216652

Story

The Curlew is one of Britain's fastest declining bird species, showcasing a 46% decline in numbers between 1994 and 2010 alone. The causes of this worrying trend remain unclear, though with Britain holding around 28% of Europe's Curlew population, it is clear something must be done now to protect the species.

As a result, our team will be tackling the Yorkshire 'Three Peaks Challenge' in 2017, to raise money for the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and contribute to their 'Curlew Appeal'. The money raised will go towards the continued monitoring of this iconic wading bird and, ultimately, contribute to the continued conservation of the Curlew in the years to come.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, and comprises around 40km of hiking over challenging terrain to be completed in under 12 hours.

We would be incredibly grateful if you would support our efforts and, in doing so, contribute to the conservation of one of Britain's most eye-catching and impressive bird species.
