WATCH: Catherine Bearder MEP and RSPB on the EU's protection of Turtle Doves

 

The RSPB's Dungeness reserve in Kent, which is supported by the EU's Birds and Habitats Directives acts as a vital conservation area for Turtle Doves.

Turtle Dove populations have plummeted by 88% since 1995 mainly through habitat loss and illegal hunting. They are now considered to be 'near threatened'.

As the Turtle Dove Champion, Catherine Bearder is determined that Britain makes use of the benefits that come as a full member of the EU and remains a strong voice in European conservation efforts. This is how we can work together to protect these amazing birds.
