This week at the RSPB
The scorching heat of the last few days is a reminder of the climate crisis we’re in. As we struggle to adapt to increasingly extreme weather, so does our wildlife. Take a look at how some of our most iconic birds are struggling to cope as our seasons change and the ways we can help turn the tide in the battle against climate change.
Avian flu – we need your help
Right now, thousands of wild birds in the UK are being killed by avian flu. Scotland’s seabirds are being seriously hit, and there are thousands of confirmed cases in England. The virus is rapidly spreading, with confirmed deaths in Wales and Northern Ireland too. Help us respond to the outbreak, donate today.
How can nature help us fight the climate emergency?
It’s not too late to fight climate change. But we need to work with nature, not against it. Read the latest thoughts of experts from around the world on how protecting and restoring wild landscapes has huge benefits for wildlife, the planet and ourselves.
