- Create partnerships with farmers and landowners locally in order to manage farmland to benefit yellowhammers.
- Work with other organisations and projects such as Snowdonia National Park Authority (SNPA) and the Welsh Assembly Government's agri-environment schemes to provide support and advice on habitat management to benefit yellowhammers.
- Hold open days to promote the work that local farmers and landowners are doing to help yellowhammers.
