On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me … two turtle doves.
26 December is, as the traditional Christmas song goes, the second day of Christmas and the Operation Turtle Dove partnership is launching an exciting competition today!
Operation Turtle Dove is a new partnership triggered by the impending crisis facing turtle doves. However, the partnership logo of the special symbolic doves of love and fidelity are currently nameless.
Operation Turtle Dove is asking people to take part in a competition to name the turtle doves on their logo Even if you have not been blessed with their appearance in your garden over the year, you may have an affection for these iconic British summer birds, so get together with friends and family over the festive period and propose a pair of names for this special logo.
Alison Gardner from Operation Turtle Dove said: “The turtle doves in our Operation Turtle Dove logo are very close to our hearts. They represent the determination of a united collaboration between four conservation organisations that are passionate about making a real difference to save this bird from UK extinction. We know how much affection the British public have towards this very special dove so we thought you could help give our loved up pair names.”
Operation Turtle Dove is asking for one male name and one female suggestion for the pair of doves. The names for the male bird, on the left, and the female bird, on the right of the logo, will be entered into a competition. Five pairs of names will be chosen at the end of January 2013. The final names will then be decided by the general public who will vote for their favourite names online between 1-13 February.
Prize will be a Valentines chocolate heart from our supporter Cally Higginbottom at Chocally http://chocally.co.uk/
