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 save sea ducks from gillnets
Beautiful sea ducks such as the rare velvet scoter can be spotted in February off the UK, as they shelter from the cold of Russia and Scandinavia.
Sadly, this species is now red-listed as a bird of highest conservation concern. Many get caught up and drown in gillnets used by large fishing fleets in the Baltic sea, where many seabirds feed. Tragically, up to an estimated 400,000 diving seabirds worldwide are killed each year, including guillemots, penguins, cormorants and sea ducks like velvet scoters.
This year RSPB scientists hope to continue working with gillnet fishermen in the Baltic to save birds, without reducing their catch.
Now is the time to save nature

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.
