There are also gaps in the evidence base that informs UK policy for conservation action. Only detailed scientific study will help us understand what’s really going on and identify the real drivers behind continued songbird declines.
SongBird Survival is a science-led organisation. We commission and fund high quality scientific research to fill in these evidence gaps and influence conservation action. Such as:
Understanding how cats affect wildlife populations is important. This multi partner project combined social science and ecology, working directly with cat owners to co-design research activities. The results are promising with the project finding practical demonstrable solutions which can reduce predation of birds.
We spend over £200million on bird food every year but how do we know we are doing the right thing for wildlife? Our research has identified how to increase garden bird survival and developed best practice advice for bird feeding.
We help you make a positive difference for songbirds by providing practical expert advice and information on ways in which to protect and support birds and wildlife in your gardens and local environment.
Our educational campaigns turn our scientific research into practical solutions which help birds to survive and thrive.
