Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust awarded a Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust grant

In 2021 the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust was awarded a Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust grant of £75,000 for Combatting the Curlew Crisis five-year Project (2021 to 2026).

The WHCT grant is to be used to fund habitat improvement and headstarting for the Curlew breeding recovery project in the Severn and Avon vales.

The Project’s intention is to see a significant increase in the population of breeding curlew from the baseline of 36 pairs in 2019 to 50 pairs by 2025.

The Project will provide a model for other local conservation efforts in lowland areas of southern Britain; the methods, knowledge, experience and partnerships gained in the Severn and Avon vales Project will therefore be used to benefit curlew and their habitats throughout southern Britain.
