We are involved in more cases then you might think. This is a small selection of cases we are currently working on, around the UK and Internationally.
The Humber is an internationally important place for wildlife but it is under pressure from industry, sea level rise and recreational disturbance.
The Firth of Forth is home to an abundance of bird species of international importance. However, industry, urban expansion and recreation all represent pressures on the integrity of the habitats of this region. In addition the Forth has been identified for extensive renewable offshore wind development which will see a further intensification of use over and above these existing pressures.
Strathy is an vast expanse of blanket bog habitat in Scotland's far North, much of which has been spoilt by inappropriate past planting of exotic conifers although it still holds breeding bird populations of international importance. We are fighting a fresh threat of inappropriate windfarms.
Thames Water plans to build the UK's largest fully bunded reservoir on farmland near Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The RSPB believes alternative ways of meeting public water supply need must be fully explored first.
The owners of a site adjacent to the internationally important Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area are proposing a major redevelopment, including plans for a business park and 975 houses.
The Danube Delta is one of Europe's premier wetlands and home to over 320 different types of bird. However it is coming under increasing pressure from development.
We are delighted that plans for a new coal-fired power station at Hunterston in Ayrshire are to be scrapped.
Three-quarters of the world population of lesser flamingos live and nest in East Africa. All depend on Tanzania's Lake Natron as a breeding site, which is threatened by a large scale soda ash development.
The Severn Estuary and its wildlife is under threat from a proposal to build an enormous barrage to generate electricity from the Severn's huge tides.
The situation at Kaliakra is bleak. Since 1 January 2007 over 360 projects have been proposed for the area that if given the go-ahead, will cause the direct loss of almost all of the areas where red-breasted geese feed during winter.
Important wildlife sites in north-east Poland are under threat from damage by a series of road projects on the so called 'Via Baltica' international road corridor.
One of the most important wetlands in Africa is in danger of drowning under a plethora of proposed developments.
We are excited to hear about development proposals for an eco-village at the former works and quarry at Magheramorne, which have lain vacant since 2002.
Scotland is of outstanding international importance for its breeding seabirds, yet offshore windfarms may threaten these populations and the marine areas they use if located in the wrong place.
Filey Bay has given life to generations of seabirds, but in recent years it has also claimed many victims.
Four hundred years ago, the Essex coast was a wild and beautiful place, a haven for wildlife and a source of livelihood for local communities. Today, less than a tenth of this wild coast remains.
We have concerns about a proposal for a massive 370 ha port-related storage facility on the South Humber Gateway.
The Mersey Estuary is massively important for wintering birds. We want to ensure that new tidal energy proposals for the site do not have negative impacts on the internationally important wildfowl and waders that depend on the Mersey for their survival.
The UK Government aim to have 20% of electricity coming from renewable energy sources by 2020. A large proportion of this is sought from offshore wind energy generation.
The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania supports possibly the greatest migration in the natural world of antelopes and 1.8 million wildebeest and is one of the most recognisable national parks in the world, but could now be severed by government plans for a major commercial highway.
Fantastic news - the Kenyan environment regulator (NEMA) has refused permission for a biofuel project that could have completely destroyed Dakatcha Woodland, one of only two sites in the world with the globally endangered Clarke's weaver. However, we still have cause for concern...
Aberdeen's wish to show that it can do with wind power what it has already done with North Sea oil must not be at the expense of important bird populations off the city's shores.
We oppose windfarm proposals at Eisgein, Lewis which threaten an important population of golden eagles and are likely to slow the spread of white-tailed eagles.
Although disappointed that Scottish Government has now consented this wind farm on Mainland Shetland, we acknowledge that adverse impacts on bird populations will be greatly reduced compared to those of original proposals to which we objected.
The proposed new high-speed rail link between London and the Midlands prompts some tough questions about planning for our future long-distance transport needs, reducing our carbon footprint and protecting wildlife at the same time.
An application for 23 houses on the site of an old office building in South Ascot, Berkshire has been refused by the Secretary of State following concerns from the RSPB and other conservation organisations about its impacts on nearby heathlands supporting vulnerable ground-nesting birds.
Able UK's marine energy park will destroy 45ha of the Humber estuary that internationally important wildlife relies on. We need your support to fight for a better approach.
East Lindsey District Council have refused the Environment Agency permission to create new intertidal habitat on the outer Humber Estuary at Donna Nook. We disagree with the Council's decision as the new habitat is essential for the future of the Estuary's wildlife.
Trory Bay in Lower Lough Erne (LLE), Fermanagh is one of the few remaining bays that remain relatively free from any form of development. Without any nature conservation protection for LLE it is under continuous development pressure.
The Environment Agency's decision to turn off some of the pumps in the Lyth Valley could provide real opportunities for enhancing wetland habitat restoration.
We are concerned about a proposal for a windfarm in North Ayrshire, close to an SPA designated for hen harriers, a species of the highest conservation priority in the UK.
We realise wind farm development is important for reducing carbon dioxide emissions from energy production, however we are concerned about the impacts that an application for an extension to the Clyde Wind Farm will have on protected species.
The south west is blessed with a geography and climate that should be able to support a vibrant renewable energy industry. However, while there is a great prize to be won here, we need to work hard to ensure that any renewable energy development is sited in the right place with minimal impact to the environment.
Plans for an airport in the Thames Estuary are unsustainable and threaten a world-class coastal wetland.
We aim to ensure that a proposed offshore wind farm in the outer Bristol Channel only proceeds with the proper environmental safeguards in place.
We are actively supporting Scottish Natural Heritage's objection to a new development that could cause significant harm to the Firth of Forth Special Protection Area.
Hintlesham Woods is one of the largest areas of ancient woodland in Suffolk. A refuge for local wildlife and a historic area of conservation for local communities. But, it is under serious threat.
Scottish Power Renewables hope to construct a large wind farm on a site surrounded by an area designated for its importance for breeding hen harriers.
Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) announced in February 2009 that they had secured development rights to investigate the potential for an offshore wind farm west of the Island of Tiree. It will be challenging to deliver a development on this site that does not cause significant environmental impacts.
A nationally important nightingale population is threatened by a development of up to 5,000 houses.
Exclusivity rights to develop wind farms have been granted for a number of sites in or close to the outer reaches of the Firths of Forth and Tay by the Crown Estate. The abundance of wildlife and the designated sites in and around the area mean it is vital to carefully consider any impacts of offshore wind farms.
St Helena is one of the most remote islands in the world. Construction of an airport is under way and the island's government is now encouraging the development of a tourism industry. Decisions taken now can have a profound affect on the environment and it's unique wildlife.
We have submitted a formal complaint to the European Commission over decisions by Natural England that place at risk the internationally important habitats and wildlife of protected areas in the South Pennines.
A major wind farm project proposed in a sensitive location has raised serious concerns about potential impacts on the Kintyre roost Special Protection Area and birds of national importance.
Greeland white-fronted geese, greylag geese and red kites could be threatened by a wind farm proposal next to Loch Ken and River Dee Special Protection Area.
We are extremely concerned about a major wind farm proposal on a site which could have significant impacts on nationally important bird species, including golden eagles.
The Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters encompasses an area off the north coast of Scotland that is of exceptional environmental quality. With the north Atlantic Ocean to the west and the North Sea to the east, these waters also offer significant renewable energy resources in the form of wave and tidal stream activity.
We are extremely concerned that Community Windpower Limited is pursing a wind farm project within an internationally important wildlife site in Dumfries and Galloway.
A new crossing for the Thames, east of London, is on the cards. Three options have been proposed and all have implications for the protected landscape and wildlife of this magnificent world class river.
A new motorway could be built south of Newport across the nationally important Gwent Levels. Three new road options have been proposed, all have worrying implications for this fragile wetland landscape.
We are responding to a proposal for up to six large wind turbines close to our Beckingham Marshes nature reserve in Nottinghamshire to make sure that local wildlife and our own reserve management objectives are not harmed.
Scottish and Southern Electricity (SSE) has applied to the Scottish Government for consent for a 47-turbine windfarm at Strathy South, a site immediately adjacent to the RSPB Forsinard reserve in the heart of the Flow Country. It is completely surrounded by land classified for its conservation interest and the site should be restored to blanket bog to re-create an extensive open habitat unspoilt by either trees or turbines. RSPB Scotland has objected to this application and considers the site to be unsuitable in principle for any windfarm.
Another developer, E.ON, plans a third windfarm, Strathy Wood, between Strathy North and Strathy South and immediately to the east. An application is expected to be made soon.
