WAYS YOU CAN HELP
We always need funds for our work in saving the iconic Turtle Dove from extinction in the UK. Any financial contribution you can make will help us enormously in securing their long-term future.
£50 to Help Raise Turtle Doves
The Trust’s Java and Turtle Doves are fed a balanced diet of mixed seeds which includes many of the varieties they would naturally find in the wild. The Trust annually uses several tonnes of this expensive mixture.
£100 to Help Purchase & Construct Pens
Our pre-release enclosures are designed to allow the young Turtle Doves maximum visibility, enabling them to become orientated before being released. By using Polytunnel hoops, covered with a strong soft net, the birds are afforded a safe and well protected temporary environment. Each enclosure costs around £2,500 to construct.
£250 to Help Purchase Trackers
Once the Turtle Doves are released into the wild precise tracking information can be obtained from GPS and Satellite ‘PTT’ tags fitted to individual Doves. Although available and a much-needed option, they have a high cost.
