Notes

No knowledge of birds or wildlife is required - just a passion and enthusiasm to help us give nature a home. Appropriate training and friendly support will be provided, and your travel expenses can be reimbursed where necessary. We ask for a suggested donation of £1 per badge and, on average, each box raises £100 per year for the RSPB. Our current range has over 100 high quality and attractive badge designs, depicting UK wildlife. The RSPB is the country's largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life once again. We also play a leading role in a worldwide partnership of nature conservation charities.
