Welcome to the Eider Aware North East project webpage
Eider Aware North East is a new project which aims to celebrate the nationally important eider populations on the Northumberland coast and raise awareness about the threats that these much-loved sea-ducks are under.
As part of the project we would like you to record any sightings of eider that you make when you’re out and about on the coast or any instances of eiders being disturbed by human activity. The data collected will help us target future conservation action. [NB: during the current Covid 19 pandemic please do follow the latest Government guidance, including that on social distancing, which can be found at www.gov.uk]
Keep an eider for regular eider news on out Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds under the hashtag #EiderAware
Funding for Eider Aware comes from Northumbrian Water’s Branch Out Fund and from the Northumberland Coast AONB
