Exploring public perceptions of white stork reintroduction

15 September 2020

You are invited to take part in a study exploring the UK public’s current awareness, knowledge and attitudes towards the white stork and its recent and ongoing reintroduction in England. A key focus of the study is to understand why perceptions vary and whether they differ between communities living close to the release site and the wider UK public. Your responses, in turn, will help inform decisions regarding the future management of the project for the mutual benefit of people and nature.

  • All views and knowledge-levels are welcome about white storks and their reintroduction to England
