There are 1.2 million members of the RSPB (The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds). They are all helping to protect nature and to support the RSPB in its work. According to its Annual Report 2022-2023, the charity's purpose is:
"To advance the conservation of birds, other wildlife and the natural world, by protecting and restoring habitats and landscapes, saving species and connecting people to nature.”
And its vision is:
"A shared world where wildlife, wild places, and all people thrive."
The RSPB works both in the UK and worldwide to protect habits, save species and address the nature and climate emergency. It aims to do this through science, species, places, people and policy. And it brings people together who love wildlife and who want to do something to restore the wellbeing of the natural world. A key work of the RSPB is to enable more people to act for nature. We all have a responsibility to protect wildlife.
Your gift will help save wildlife - it will make a difference to wildlife in the UK and further afield. Help give nature a home!
Among the RSPB's activities are the Big Garden Watch, held every year in January (it's the 26th to 28th January 2024). Anyone can join in, and all you have to do is to sit for an hour, note the different types of birds in your garden or local park & then report them back to the RSPB, to help them assess bird populations.
Another activity is the Big School Birdwatch, which encourages children to get to know more about nature, wildilfe & birds in particular. This has been spectacularly successful. The RSPB is also involved overseas in projects with other organisations such as BirdLife International.
What is biodiversity?
The RSPB explains what it is and why it matters – and what we can all do about biodiversity loss. Find out here. And find out what you can do to help nature here. Even if you take just one action, that's better than none at all. It could be as simple as choosing flowers for a pot in your garden that bees and butterflies like. Easy! Just be willing to share your space - how about giving wildlife a little corner of their own with a log pile?
