Birdworld and the Great Bustard Group are undertaking a project to bring the Great Bustard bird back to Britain after years of extinction.
The Great Bustard Project was created to re-introduce the species and works tirelessly to re-establish the birds in the UK to create a self sustaining population.
Birdworld has been supporting the Great Bustard Project for several years now by giving a percentage of all money raised in raffles and collections.
As well as fundraising, Birdworld has also been raising awareness of the plight of the Great Bustard with information boards and taxidermy at the park.
