Help Wildlife Get Involved
There are many ways you can make a real difference, below are just some projects and activities you can do and get involved with.
North of England Hen Harrier Community Consultation
This consultation wants to find out what people think of hen harriers, how they ‘relate’ to them and to determine the level of support for possible future public engagement activities with the species. One of the objectives of the work is to examine how future public engagement activities (e.g. guided walks, viewing opportunities, education programmes, web-cams and interpretation materials) relating to hen harriers might, or might not, be developed. The consultation is exploring how various organisations might better involve and engage people with these birds, within the context of communities, in three areas of northern England: north Tynedale, Northumberland; the Geltsdale area (south of Brampton), Cumbria; and, the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire. This consultation is being conducted by independent consultants, ‘Glead Ecological & Environmental Services’ (GEES) and has been commissioned by the RSPB, with support from the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. If you have views relating to hen harriers – and if you are over 18 – then you can email them to
