What is an RSPB campaigner?

The main aims of being an RSPB campaigner are to remind your MP, or local decision-maker, that environmental issues are important and to urge them to take positive action.

As a constituent and a consumer, you can influence people who make some pretty big decisions. By saying the right thing the right way, you can make others take action for nature.

You'll also be inspiring your local community to take action as you'll be building support and raising awareness of our campaigns and appeals. 

If you'd like to step up for nature and really make a difference, then we've got an exciting volunteer role for you to do just that.
