‘Dove Step are doing a great job raising funds for our project this year, every pound means more food and shelter for our magnificent North Yorkshire Turtle Doves’Richard Baines Turtle Dove Project Officer – North York Moors National Park Authority
All funds raised from Dove Step 3.1 will be donated to the North Yorkshire Turtle Dove Project (NYTDP). NYTDP work with farmers in the North York Moors National Park and Howardian Hills AONB to increase the scale and quality of habitats for Turtle Doves. 100% of the funds raised will be spent on Turtle Dove conservation; wild flower plots for seed food, pond management and/or scrub planting for nest sites’ For more information on the project see the North York Moors National Park Turtle Dove Project.
All our fundraising is channeled through the JustGiving page to the RSPB, as a NYTDP project partner they can ensure that all the funds reach the project and maintain Dove Step’s strict policy of ensuring every penny raised benefits Turtle Doves.
We also ensure that there is a tangible, delivered benefit from each journey; habitat creation, research, trial feeding plots, satellite tracking. There has to be this direct link to ensure we push as hard as possible and deliver for both Turtle Doves and Dove Step supporters.
Dove Step is proudly sponsored by premier optics company Opticron, as well as supporting team members Opticron actively support the Dove Step fundraising.
