Will you help protect our precious wildlife?

Birds like the barn owl need your help right now. 70% of fledged barn owls die within their first year.

In autumn, young barn owls begin their dispersal - leaving their parents' home range alone.

But more owls die during this time than at any other.

The deaths of these young owls are caused by threats like starvation and traffic collisions, but you can help.

Will you donate now to help save these vulnerable creatures?

Your donations could help install dedicated nesting boxes along our traffic-free routes giving birds like the barn owl a safe place to rest away from cars and near natural food sources.

By supporting the National Cycle Network, ensuring more people are able to make a choice to walk, wheel or cycle and reducing the numbers of cars on the road, we’re also giving young barn owls a better chance of survival.

Yes, I'll protect wildlife. 

  • £10 could care for a section of hedgerow, providing desperately needed food for animals like barn owls
  • £20 could buy the tools required by our volunteers to install dedicated bird boxes for barn owls
  • £40 could help pay for the specialist knowledge from ecologists to ensure the longevity of our work.
