The Trust is currently hosting student Anika Preuss who is researching the effect of fitting data loggers to birds for the purpose of research.
Our Project Officer, Andre Botha, who is based in South Africa, found a White-backed Vulture dangerously entangled in a dead tree. Here is his account of what happened:
Calling all budding writers and poets! Does the vulture crisis concern you? Does it stir up emotions when you think about vultures and the problems they face? Then, we want to hear from you.
At the Trust, we are fortunate to have many volunteers that work on a variety of different projects and tasks. One of our volunteers in the conservation and research team, Heather Howes, has been working on a project that measures how variations in small mammal populations affect breeding raptors.
It’s open! Our brand new ‘Meet the Burrowers’ exhibit is now ready for you to come and discover more about these cute and curious creatures that nest underground.
Thank you to Martin Hughes-Games who joined us for a fantastic Wildlife Weekend!
We’re pleased to announce that the overall winner of our 2017 Photographic Competition is Paul Stuart for this stunning image he captured of a wild Barn Owl.
