Save the house sparrow
UK house sparrow numbers have declined by 10 million in 25 years. Wild Sparrows has been run to bring house sparrows back to the cities, towns and villages of the West Country. You can help if you:
  • Build a sparrow terrace so they have more places to nest;
  • Grow nasturtiums to provide insect food for baby sparrows and;
  • Make your garden, school grounds or community space sparrow friendly
