We need the skylarks' song more than ever today

Right now, London’s skylarks are on the brink of extinction. Yet in the current coronavirus pandemic, hearing their glorious cascading song will bring a vital comfort to many of us and our loved ones.

We will be carrying out this work later than we had initially planned, due to the impact of coronavirus on the way we work.

Wildlife will continue to need your help as much as ever once this period is over. The pandemic is also set to have a big financial impact on London Wildlife Trust, so we really do need your help now, before it’s too late.

We need our songbirds more than ever today, so now’s the time to help save them.
With your support, we can protect the few skylarks on sites where they’re still breeding, and help re-establish successful populations. 

Please don’t let the skylark’s song become a thing of the past in London.
