What's on

To Africa and Back – Saving the European Turtle Dove

Wednesday 28th September 2016,
7.30pm - 9.30pm

Venue: St. John the Evangelist Church Hall, Hills Road, Cambridge

Operation Turtle Dove is a flyway-scale conservation programme to save the UK's fastest declining bird: the turtle dove. Since Operation Turtle Dove began in 2012, we have made real progress and this talk by Dr Carles Carboneras (RSPB International Migrants Programme Manager) will explore some of these successes. We will follow the birds on their journey from Suffolk to Senegal and discuss some of the exciting conservation work that is taking place along the way. The project is tackling tough conservation challenges and making scientific breakthroughs using cutting edge technology. We’ll finish by discussing how cement producers and lettuce farmers are part of the solution for turtle doves, and how you too can help us save these fascinating birds.
