Save the House Sparrows

"In conservation, we need more birds EVERYONE can access and conserve, whether they live in Portsmouth of the Norfolk Broads. 

I think I may have one..."

Project Birdbox

Welcome visitors to your site with a short, engaging introduction. Double click to edit and add your own text.

I've currently got several birdbox-related projects I'm trying to raise funds for. Please do spare a moment to see if you'd be able to help contribute to any of them by clicking below. Thank-you!

Havant Eco Fair

A lovely local event I recently attended, right in the heart of Havant. Songs about wildlife decline, recycled birdboxes, and some of the best veggie food I've ever had. What more could you want? Find out about upcoming events below:

Education

Informing the community

From school visits to events, education is vital in conservation. You can also read my blogs on all things House Sparrows above, and do email any questions/queeries you may have.

Crowdfunding

My most recent crowdfunder was so successful it's since had to be taken down, after raising nearly £400 in a few days! This'll help fund a further 200 birdboxes.

See how it's going here: Nestbox project | Save the House Sparr (savethehousesparrow.com)

Practical conservation

From ripping up old garden sheds and turning them into nestboxes, to petitioning for land to be managed for wildlife, see what's going on right now by visiting my social media pages: @save_the_house_sparrow .

Project Nestbox

Over Summer, I set up a crowd-funder,

that raised over £150 in a few hours! This is mind-blowing, and I have to say a huge thank-you to everyone.

And it's being put to good use! To re-create the historical cracks/crevices House Sparrows have lost (and declined as a result) I've built over 300 birdboxes since the project's beginning, installed on everywhere from schools to factories. 

Visit:  Nestbox project | Save the House Sparr (savethehousesparrow.com) to see the results!

Birds in Buildings

"The worrying declines in House Sparrows are not anomalies. The facts is there's no longer enough wild for wildlife to live in, most of it is now on our TV screens. We've got to start rewilding our urban spaces, and House Sparrows are a perfect starting point."

Connections with Nature

Compiled by Kate Stephenson, Connections With Nature is a brilliant anthology of the relationships and connections between people and their local wildlife, which I was lucky enough to write a piece for.

All Things Wild Podcast

Had a lot of fun recording an episode of All Things Wild Podcast with the brilliant Martin Kitto. We talk all about House Sparrows from day 1 when they were just non descript little cave-dwelling birds, all the way up to overthrowing 2/3s of the Earth's land mass. You can listen on Spotify, Buzzsprouts or your usual podcasting site.

Wicor Primary School

Dung beetle statues, orchards, stumperies and birdboxes... oh and a school!

As the first school I worked with, installing birdboxes and helping manage the grounds, Wicor Primary School has a special place in my heart, and has won countless awards for its contribution to wildlife. Do find out more below.
