RSPB - Hen Harrier LIFE+

The Hen Harrier LIFE Project is an ambitious programme of hen harrier conservation covering northern England and southern and eastern Scotland, funded through the EU LIFE+ scheme. Running from 2014-2019, the project combines direct conservation action through satellite tagging, on the ground monitoring and nest protection, with awareness-raising and community engagement measures.
We aim to ensure:
• Teachers have the resources and motivation to teach pupils about hen harriers, and are able to incorporate it into their curriculum
• Awareness of hen harriers is raised in the wider community as pupils share what they’ve learned with parents and family members
• Schools have access to the Hen Harrier Hero awards and Wild Challenge
• Pupil are inspired to feel ownership of local hen harriers
