Story

It is estimated that there are just 300 pairs of Curlew south of Birmingham, and these could disappear in just eight years. However, this isn’t just a problem facing the south. Breeding curlew have declined by 46% across the UK in just 25 years. The picture would be more widespread if Curlew were not thriving on driven grouse moors. 

I am running my first marathon in 8 years to try and raise £1,000 and help save one of our most iconic wetland birds. OK I admit that saving the Curlew isn't perhaps on a par with finding a cure for cancer or helping homeless ex servicemen but they need your help and once they have gone, they are gone forever. So please spare a few quid and help me to help one of our rarest birds.

£25 - could help The GWCT to get their practical guidelines in the hands of those on the ground who can bring about curlew recovery

£100 - could help The GWCT highlight how current conservation policy is failing to give curlew the best chance of recovery by briefing journalists and politicians

£250 - helps the GWCT get advisors out to curlew sites and assess what can be done to aid their recovery on the ground this year
