Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our fundraising page! [/p][p][b]Please donate and help us learn more about Sheffield’s urban Peregrines, which first nested in 2012 on St George's Church at The University of Sheffield. [/b][/p][p] [/p][p]In partnership with the Sheffield Bird Study Group, the University installed webcams to provide a panoramic view of the nest platform and nearby perch on top of the church. Over the last eight years, 20 chicks have fledged successfully from 32 eggs laid. Over a million visits to the webcams have been made, as people from around the world have followed the highs and lows as eggs were laid, chicks hatched and the juveniles fledged![/p][p][br][/p][p]Now we’re asking for you to donate so that we can extend the peregrines project by some (or all!) of the following:[/p][p]-[gt] Installing a camera in a better position to improve our view of the nest[/p][p]-[gt] Organising talks and [url=https://sheffieldperegrines.wordpress.com/peregrine-watches/]events [/url]to share our knowledge of the Peregrines with the public [/p][p]-[gt] Carrying out research, including investigating why some eggs fail to hatch[/p][p]-[gt]DNA profiling individuals to learn more about the family relationships of the birds[/p][p]-[gt] Ringing (and colour-ringing) the peregrine chicks so that we can monitor their activity once they have left the nest and better understand their movements[/p][p] -[gt] Determining the sex of future peregrine chicks using genetic markers[/p][p]-[gt] Supporting investigations into wildlife crimes such as shooting or poisoning of birds of prey[/p][p]-[gt] Arranging for a publication to outline the success of the Peregrine project in its first 10 years[/p][p] [/p][p]If you would like to know more about the birds, have a look at the [url=http://sheffieldperegrines.wordpress.com/]Sheffield Peregrines blog[/url], the [url=http://www.sbsg.org/]Sheffield Bird Study Group[/url] website or see the [url=http://peregrine.group.shef.ac.uk/peregrines/]webcams[/url]. [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p][b] THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT![/b][/p][p][b][br][/b][/p][p][b]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can support us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to our two charities who will work together on the above. [/b][/p][p] [/p][p][b][i]The University of Sheffield[/i][/b][i] (Exempt Charity No. X1089 – [/i][url=http://www.sheffield.ac.uk][i]http://www.sheffield.ac.uk[/i][/url][i]) is in the top 110 universities in the world, renowned for our excellence, impact and distinctiveness of our research-led learning and teaching. We have a strong commitment to our community through volunteering, fundraising, research and local partnerships. [/i][/p][p] [/p][p][b][i]Sheffield Bird Study Group[/i][/b][i] (Registered charity number 510857) was formed in December 1972 as a forum for birdwatchers in and around the city. The group covers a hugely diverse area, stretching north towards Barnsley, south to Chesterfield, east to the lowlands beyond Rotherham and Bolsover, and west to the highest tops of the Peak District National Park. We aim to promote an interest in birds in the community, co-ordinate fieldwork and recording in the area, and work with and complement the work of like-minded local and national organisations for the benefit of birds. [/i][/p][p][b]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/b][/p]
