Save your stamps

Do you have an old stamp album or collection gathering dust in a cupboard or draw? Donate it to us and together we can save albatrosses.

How it works

  • Dig out those old stamp collections, first day covers and albums
  •  Send them to us or drop them off at your nearest RSPB reserve or office
  • We work with a well-respected stamp auction house who re-lots and sells them at monthly auctions
  • All funds raised helps save albatrosses out at sea

Each year, your stamp collections help us to raise thousands of pounds for albatross conservation.

Please note that we no longer accept donations of used postage stamps and are now focusing on rare and collectible items for auction including stamps, coins and medals.

Help us stamp out albatross deaths

15 out of 22 albatross species are threatened with extinction. The main threat to albatrosses is death on a hook at the end of a fishing long-line. 

The Albatross Task Force is helping to save albatrosses from extinction both at sea and on land. They show fishing crews how to stop albatrosses from being killed and share the best techniques and tools.

With BirdLife International partners and other organisations, we're working to stop the needless slaughter of these amazing birds and bring them back from the brink of extinction. 

Working with a specialist auction house, we can raise money for this vital work. Each stamp is examined and lotted with other donations to raise optimum value. By donating your old collections you're helping give albatrosses a brighter future.
