Who we are
Support the Great Bustard Group
The Great Bustard Group is a Registered Charity (1092515) created and committed to reintroducing this British species back into the wild.
We’ve received significant support from the public and our patrons, including HRH, The Prince of Wales. We’re raising £2.5m to help us develop a successful captive breeding programme, provide greater legal protection from threats and develop a new visitors centre and education base at Salisbury Plain where we can inform and inspire future generations.
You can learn more about the Great Bustard and its incredible history. You can also read about our fundraising activities and targets, including how you can become involved and help safeguard the future for the species in Great Britain.
What is the Great Bustard?
The Great Bustard is a natural wonder. The heaviest flying bird in the world, it became extinct in the UK in 1832 and faces an uncertain future, with a plummeting global population.
The Great Bustard Group was created in 1998 to establish the bird as a self-sustaining species with a population of 100, something we achieved in 2019. But to protect the future of the Great Bustard, we need your help.
You can donate today to help us bring the Great Bustard back to Great Britain and Ireland.
