How coronavirus (covid-19) is affecting Project Godwit

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: 8 June 2021

We are very pleased to be able to let you know that the EU LIFE Nature Programme has granted Project Godwit a one-year extension to allow us to complete activities delayed by covid-19. Our new project end date is 31 Dec 2022.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: 16 February 2021

Following detailed planning and risk assessment, we are proceeding with fieldwork activities for the 2021 breeding season, this will include habitat management, headstarting and monitoring. Face-to-face engagement remains on hold. All work will be done in accordance with government restrictions and within the guidelines of our partner organisations. Plans and risk assessments will be reviewed regularly.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: 13 December 2020

We have taken the decision to cancel our local engagement programme until September 2021. As a result all schools activities and seasonal events will not take place during the 2021 breeding season. But fingers-crossed we'll be back in for the 2021/22 school year and, should we be granted an extension, the 2022 breeding season.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: 18 March 2020

During these challenging times, Project Godwit unfortunately has had to make the difficult decision to postpone many project activities for this year. Much of our work involving head-starting, monitoring, community engagement and habitat management has sadly had to be postponed this season due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. This is to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and the general public, as well as follow Government advice and restrictions.

Project Godwit is discussing with our partners, stakeholders and funders how we can best cope with the impacts of the coronavirus.
