Many of our reserves are now open and our local groups are still recruiting so there is plenty to get involved with by donating your time and talents. Find all our current opportunities here. There are some you can do from the comfort of your own home or out and about on our reserves and projects. Nature needs people to take action, we hope you’ll find something that interests you.

It was through volunteering with the RSPB that I gained the confidence to write about wildlife for my church magazine. You see, I have learned so much – everyone is approachable and keen to share their knowledge with you.
