Welcome to the Hen Harrier Day website, run by Hen Harrier Action, which celebrates and protects the wildlife of our uplands. We do this in a number of ways, including supporting and promoting annual Hen Harrier Days around the UK and online. These events aim to provide information about and celebrate the wildlife of the uplands and the problems it faces. They are also an occasion to raise our voices against the main reason for the hen harrier’s rarity in the UK– illegal persecution.

Our vision is of the UK’s uplands as places where all nature thrives unharmed by human activity, places where people can enjoy a rich and diverse environment in harmony with nature rather than in conflict with it. There are a number of ways to become involved with our work – the News & Events pages and the Get Involved menu are helpful places to look for more information – and of course you can contact us if you would like to help: info@henharrier.org.uk. Additionally, you can sign up for our newsletter, and follow us on social media: Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
