Make more space for nature

We need your help to double the land we manage for nature by 2030.

Share our vision for nature

Every month you share our vision of giving nature a home, through your membership.

But we hope you’ll also want to share in an even grander vision; to double the land we manage for nature by 2030.

Habitat loss means nature is suffering. 

Wetlands have been drained. Moorlands drained and burnt. Heathlands lost. Our farmland, woodland, meadows and coasts are all suffering too.

Nature needs bigger, better homes. 

Bigger spaces for wildlife are the only way to help nature thrive, rather than simply survive.

So it’s vital we connect our wild spaces up again, across entire landscapes. With your help we could expand the space we manage for nature, so it covers around 260 square kilometres - roughly the same size as Dorset!

How does our 2030 vision fit into the bigger picture for the UK’s environment?

The government has set its vision for a green future in a detailed 25 year plan to improve the environment. The RSPB’s Senior Policy Officer Robin Wynde talks to Jane Markham about the plan and what needs to be done to achieve its goals.

More wetlands

You can welcome visitors, old and new

The patterns of our visiting birds are changing with new visitors such as great white egrets, little bitterns and spoonbills arriving from southern Europe, searching for the wetland homes they need. 

Now we need your help to create more wetlands right across southern England. Big open spaces of water and reedbed will help these beautiful birds successfully adapt to changes in their traditional breeding areas.

More moorlands

You can make our moorlands sing with life

Since 2010, the RSPB has worked in partnership with United Utilities at Dove Stone in the Peak District. Together, we’re working to turn the entire moorland landscape back into its pristine natural state.

We’re encouraging bog plants to recolonize. Insects soon follow. Then breeding wading birds such as dunlins, golden plovers, and curlews can make a comeback. Extending our uplands restoration is a key part of our vision to double the land we mange for nature by 2030. We urgently need your help today to restore more.

More heathland

You can stop rare species being lost

Heathland isn’t just one of our rarest habitats, it’s also one of our most rich in wildlife. Thousands of species make a home in heathland similar to that found on the RSPB Arne reserve. And since many of them live only on heath, their survival depends on saving their home.

We need your help to remove invasive scrub and inappropriate pine plantations, before rejuvenating heather and gorse. But to help our heathlands become self-sustaining, we also need to join up isolated pockets of heath, and create space for heathland wildlife to spread.
