Taking Part

How to get involved

If you have a potential study species, please check the instructions (PDF, 117.86 KB) or contact the RAS Organiser to determine whether this would make a suitable project and then complete a registration form (DOC, 225.50 KB).

An annual publication, RAS News, is produced and sent to all ringers involved with the project. It includes up-to-date information about the project and will act as a forum for the exchange of information between ringers. For further information about RAS please contact the ras [at] bto.org at BTO.

Retrapping Adults for Survival is funded by a partnership of the BTO, the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (on behalf of Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage and Natural Resources Wales, and also on behalf of the Environment and Heritage Service in Northern Ireland), Duchas the Heritage Service - National Parks and Wildlife (Ireland), and the ringers themselves.
