Jays at Madingley

We are delighted to announce that due to a number of generous donations from both members of the public and the scientific community, together with support from the University of Cambridge, we are able to keep the corvid aviaries at Madingley open for a further five years.

We are very grateful to everyone who has contributed to helping the University of Cambridge secure the future of this important research facility, especially Alex Gerko, Founder and CEO of XTX Markets. We welcome any further donations to help us keep the facility open beyond this period.

The aviaries have been the location of exceptional research led by Professor Nicky Clayton FRS that has transformed our understanding of the behaviour and intelligence of these bird species.
