The Starling Project

Let's become one extraordinary movement.


Each starling in a flock is connected to every other. When they turn in unison, hundreds of individual birds twist and turn as one. These flocks – called murmurations – are so connected that one bird’s movement impacts all the others. Starlings are one of the most visible and beautiful examples of a community working as one.

The Starling Project hopes to inspire entire communities of individuals to keep children safe from harm by considering how one person’s actions impact so many. We must work together as a community – as a murmuration – to eradicate child abuse and neglect.


Create a murmuration of people working as one to eradicate child abuse and neglect.

We need your help to achieve this milestone and come one step closer to protecting ALL of our children from harm.
