Wildlife needs more help this year
Your gift of £20.19 is urgently needed today to help step up vital work to save threatened birds and wildlife this year. You can help save puffins and curlews from UK extinction, give homes to lesser spotted woodpeckers and help golden eagles spread their wings.
We’ll put your gift straight to work and do more where it’s needed most – helping to save threatened wildlife and create the homes they urgently need. But first we must raise another £302,850 by 5 March. The time to save nature is now. So please give £20.19 or whatever you can afford, to help nature today. Thank you.
Increase our impact for wildlife every season
Your gift of £20.19 today will be put to work straightaway to help give nature a home this year. This video shows just some of the species and projects you could help in the next 12 months.
£20.19 could provide ancient woodland homes
Lesser spotted woodpecker numbers have slowly shrunk in line with the decline of ancient oak, birch and elm broadleaf forests. Latest figures suggest as few as 700 pairs remain.
The same size as a sparrow, lesser spotted woodpeckers begin to flit over hundreds of hectares of ancient woodland each March, to find the rare bugs, larvae and caterpillars found only in the oldest trees. As our woodland has become more fragmented, their food supply has dried up, leaving many to starve.
This is only one of many species that rely on ancient woodland. In 2019, you can support work to protect, grow and restore woodlands from the New Forest to Sherwood and Loch Lomond.
Now is the time to save nature
Save threatened species
Your gift of £20.19 today could get to work right away to help to save puffins, curlews and breeding black-tailed godwits from the threat of UK extinction.
Protect homes for nature
Your gift of £20.19 could help give threatened lesser spotted woodpeckers a home on RSPB reserves, along with great white egrets and nightjars.
Secure natural spectacles
From golden eagles soaring high to screaming swifts flitting across a city sunset, to hearing nightjars churr on a dusky heathland, you can help preserve wonderful moments like these.
Give nature bigger, better homes by 2030
Please support us with a gift today, to help make progress towards our 2030 vision for nature.
- We aim to protect 69 of our most threatened birds including curlews and puffins.
- By 2025 we want to see 25% of UK land and 10% of UK seas being well managed for nature.
- We aim to double the land we protect for nature to create bigger, better homes for wildlife.
We can’t achieve these ambitions in one giant leap. But we can work on nature’s recovery one year at a time. With your help the cycle of nature will begin to grow bigger and better with each year that goes by.
