A Helping Hand for Upland Wildlife


Protecting and celebrating upland nature and biodiversity

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.


A place where nature thrives

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. Places where the land is managed sustainably and proactively to increase biodiversity and protect and encourage all the species that call it home.
