Media centre

Welcome to the RSPB's Media Centre, we are here to help you produce great stories.

Providing you with topical news, features and comment is just the start. You can also find the contact details of our national and regional media officers across the UK, our press release archive and details of the resources we can provide to help you. We place a very high value on quality media coverage and we look forward to working with you to achieve this.

The stories we tell reflect the RSPB's leading role as a campaigning charity working to save threatened birds and wildlife, the special places they depend on and the environment that supports them.

Our unique combination of practical land management and cutting edge policy work is supported by sound science and more than a million members, including the world's largest wildlife club for young people.
