As Wessex Museums, we are in a unique position to raise awareness and share best practice in environmental sustainability across our partnership, the sector and the region.
We are also committed to the principles of environmental sustainability, and through our action plan, we aim to reduce the carbon footprint of our organisation.
Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.
The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.
The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
