I am organising a one day conference to highlight the plight of the Curlew throughout Wales. It will be held in the Royal Welsh Showground. It is now full but we have kept a couple of spaces for any latecomers, especially farmers and land managers. Please can you contact me if you are interested in attending. The day is from 09.30 - 4.00. The conference will be opened by Welsh naturalist and TV presenter Iolo Williams
"The curlew is such an iconic species in Wales. It's an integral part of our cultural and natural history and it's vital that we do everything possible to prevent it from disappearing altogether as a breeding bird."
Curlew used to be common throughout Wales, thousands bred on the mountains, fields and valleys and were part of Welsh life. From the 1980s numbers crashed and a recent estimate puts the breeding pairs at around 400.
We will explore what work is being done for Curlew in Wales and what practically needs to happen to bring them back.
