House sparrows in schools

The House Sparrow - one of our commonest and most familiar birds, has declined by over 50% over the last 25 years in both urban and rural habitats. The House Sparrows in Schools Project supported by Restore UK has four main aims: To raise awareness in schools of the importance of house sparrow populations and make links to the wider issues of decline in familiar countryside birds; to involve children in a practical conservation project in school grounds; to deliver practical conservation measures to sustain house sparrow populations; and to pilot a summer House Sparrow breeding survey. 50 primary schools across east Anglia are provided with nest boxes, and free food for 3 years. They are also provided with `I`m in Trouble` information packs and a fun assembly presentation. Close monitoring will provide the information to transfer this to a national project. Restore has fully funded the Nest boxes, bird tables and school mailing.

Of all the trees that grow so fair,
Old England to adorn,
Greater are none beneath the Sun,
Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
