White Storks Lecture
About the event
The White Stork Project is a pioneering partnership of private landowners and nature conservation organisations, who are working together to restore a population of breeding White Storks in southern England after an absence of several centuries.
Project Officer, Lucy Groves, will discuss the progress of the project so far – including how and when the storks are released, the excitement of the first breeding attempt in 2019 and successful breeding this year, the innovative methods the team are using to track the storks progress, including satellite tracking migration, and the work carried out by volunteers. She will also explain the wider vision of the project to use of the emblematic white stork in reconnecting people with nature.
