Green heart in berry tree

Show the love

Climate change is already having an impact on much of our wildlife. Help us turn red hearts green from 6-14 February to Show the Love for all the things we want to protect from climate change.

Love your home

Something’s not quite right here in our beautiful home: climate change is bringing about new storms and increased flooding, affecting so many of the things we love. Join us to #ShowTheLove this Valentine's Day, and be part of building a better home for us all: theclimatecoalition.org/loveyourhome

Take a look outside your window, notice anything different?

Something’s not quite right here in our

beautiful home- on the pitches where we kick about, in the parks where we play, by the rivers where we stroll.

Our climate is changing and it's bringing more storms,

and more flooding.

It’s putting the people, places, and things 

We love at risk.

But there's hope.  Piece by piece, branch by branch, we can work together to build a better home

For creatures big and small, and all the things that fill our hearts.

So around this time of love, stand up for something precious.

Your home. We all have a part to play

 

Join us and show the love.

    Why is the RSPB involved?

    The RSPB is one of over 130 members of The Climate Coalition and sister organisations, Stop Climate Chaos Scotland and Stop Climate Chaos Cymru. Together we are the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to climate action.

    Climate change is already affecting much of the wildlife we love. Warmer seas are causing some seabirds to struggle to find food, and unseasonably wet weather has seen the nests of some wetland birds washed away, devastating populations. Meanwhile birds traditionally found in warmer climates, such as egrets, are becoming more common in the uk. 

    We’re working hard to make a difference, and are determined to make sure our nature has a home in the future.
