The Eagle Reintroduction Wales (ERW) project: An evening lecture and discussion with Sophie-Lee Williams (raptor biologist), Cardiff University School of Biosciences


Event outline

The Eagle Reintroduction Wales (ERW) project is a community-research project investigating the potential of bringing back our lost eagle species to soaring the skies of modern Wales. ERW is exploring options for reintroduction of the Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), known in the Welsh language as Eryr euriad, and the White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), known in Welsh as Eryr y mor.

Eagles have been extinct as breeding species in Wales for over 150 years, and the modern Welsh landscape is significantly different from the historic landscape eagles were familiar with. Sophie-Lee Williams will discuss the work of ERW in assessing if the current Welsh landscape has the potential to support sustainable eagle populations, to get the ball rolling on establishing the potential for reintroduction of Golden and White-tailed Eagle populations.

For further information about the project, please visit the ERW website.
