Eurasian curlew recovery project
Britain holds a quarter of the world’s curlew population. But in our changing landscapes, they are increasingly unable to rear chicks. WWT is working to understand why and reverse the decline.
Today in the UK we’re in danger of losing the curlew from many of its traditional landscapes. The number of breeding birds has dropped by about 65% since 1970. Our modern landscapes are making it increasingly difficult for adults to rear enough chicks to fledging age. Because curlew live for a relatively long time, the hit on their population hasn't been obvious, as adult birds are still readily seen - but the lack of new chicks is becoming more and more apparent.
The curlew is now regarded as the most pressing bird conservation priority in the UK, where we hold a quarter of the world’s population. The decline of the curlew is not just the loss of a valuable wetland species, but a significant cultural and heritage loss too.
