Skydancer conservation project

The Skydancer project was all about people power and if we’re to turn things around for hen harriers, we need your help!

We need your help

If you have an idea for raising awareness about hen harriers, we want to hear from you! 

So far, people inspired by hen harriers and Skydancer have created knitted hen harrier puppets, written and recorded a skydancer song, started a Twitter campaign and even put on a walking theatre performance! 

Whether it's selling cakes or running 10km dressed as a hen harrier, get in touch with your ideas and we will support you in any way we can!
