Show the love

Climate change is already having an impact on much of our wildlife. You’ve helped us to turn red hearts green since 2015! Show the Love returns from 5 - 29 February 2020

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.

Make your pledge for nature

Whether it’s by driving less, committing to one meat-free meal a week, letting part of your garden grow wild, or any other means, everyone has the power to positively impact nature and the environment.

We are asking you to share your personal pledge for nature to inspire others to do the same. Either write or film your pledge and share it on social media using #ShowtheLove.

On their own, individual actions may seem unnoteworthy. Together we can work to restore nature and tackle climate change.

Switch to green energy

Here’s something you can do to show the love and help combat climate change without even leaving your chair.

Switch to green energy with our partner Ecotricity and we’ll receive £50 for every year you remain with them. Just quote ‘RSPB’ when you sign up. That’s great for us, but what’s really great for the planet is that, so far RSPB supporters have saved over 3,500 metric tonnes of CO2 by switching. That would take 1,737,000 trees an entire year to store that amount of carbon!

So switch to green energy with Ecotricity today, and you’ll be doing us and the planet a favour.
