Curlew Conservation


Ireland's Curlew

Breeding And Wintering Tagging Project

Over the last 50 years loss of suitable breeding habitat has been the main driver of Curlew population declines. However, depredation is now substantially exacerbating population losses. Numbers of breeding Curlew are now so critically low, that in addition to habitat management and restoration, predator control is an essential element in their protection

This outlines the decision making process by which we establish whether or not intervention is needed to minimize the risk of depredation on vulnerable ground-nesting birds
