Redlist Revival has started the Life on Land Project to raise awareness of Life on Land, to encourage engagement in the management and enhancement of species and to provide a method of acknowledgement for those performing at the highest levels.

The project aims to provide Ecological Value Map for Birds for the 2,854 communities in The Life Map covering the UK mainland and have 10% of the UK’s land area registering an interest in Life on Land.

The project intends to promote 1,500 surveys across the UK mainland using the Breeding Bird Survey methodology to bench-mark ecological performance for the 130 species in the All-species Bird Index.

The project expects to identify performances higher than the national bench-mark for all 35 of the priority species of Bird of Conservation Concern in the All-species Bird Index.
