RSPB Phoenix is for teenage members of the RSPB. If you are already an RSPB Wildlife Explorer you will automatically become an RSPB Phoenix member from your 13th birthday.
As an RSPB Phoenix member you will receive BirdLife magazine every two months, and also get Wingbeat – the only environmental magazine written by teenagers for teenagers - four times a year.
As well as articles about wildlife, the environment and conservation, Wingbeat runs many special offers and competitions.
You also have free entry to RSPB nature reserves and the sure knowledge that your membership is helping to conserve wildlife in the UK and abroad.
Each year, a conference is held for Phoenix members. In 2005, we held it in London and had the chance to visit Westminster, in 2006 it was at Leighton Moss, Lancashire, one of our most important nature reserves. In 2007, it was Conwy's turn to host the conference and in 2008, it was at Pulborough Brooks, West Sussex. 2009 saw those attending decamp to the Suffolk coast, with Minsmere the venue.
This year we are offering the chance for even more teenagers to get involved with the conference, thanks to funding by the National Lottery through Awards for All.
Are you between 16 and 18 years old? If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to spend a week on one of our nature reserves, now is the time to do something about it. We have chances for teenagers to volunteer in summer 2014. More...
