Today, the high street cosmetics store Lush has launched a hen harrier bath bomb, proceeds of which will go to the Hen Harrier LIFE+ Project to help fund our satellite tagging operation from next season! Satellite tagging allows us to learn more about their ecology and to find out where they might be at risk. 

The bath bomb was named by TV presenter Chris Packham, 'Skydancer – Far From The Madding Guns'.

This follow-up campaign by Lush, comes ahead of Hen Harrier Day this Sunday 9th August (http://henharrierday.org/) and the start of the grouse shooting season on the Glorious Twelfth to help inform the general public of the decline in hen harrier numbers over recent years.

Jeff Knott, the RSPB’s Head of Nature Policy, said: “We are delighted that Lush has come up with this imaginative way of raising awareness about hen harriers and getting their customers involved in their conservation.  Everyone who buys a bath bomb will be making a valuable contribution towards bringing this amazing bird of prey back from the brink of extinction in England."

Please pop into your local Lush store this weekend and help save our hen harriers!
