We had a wonderful response to the Q&A sessions on the day, so it’s taking a little longer to gather responses. We' hope to have these up on the website by Friday 30th October. Thank you for your patience.

Gamebird shooting policy review

In response to growing concerns about the environmental impact of some intensive forms of gamebird shooting and associated land management practices, the RSPB has reviewed its policy. We announced the results of the review at the AGM. 

The future of conservation

We believe that young people should have a say on the environment they'll inherit. Hear from some inspiring young naturalists as they talk about their work and share their ideas and thoughts.

A natural climate solution

Nature can play an incredible role in helping tackle climate change by locking up carbon in our precious habitats. This talk explores the RSPB’s work on this across policy, science and the role our nature reserves play, particularly focusing on our woodlands, peatlands and coastal habitats.

Finding new ways to take action for nature

In the summer we launched a new project to inspire more diverse audiences to take action to tackle the nature and climate crisis. Watch again as we celebrate what people have said they value during the pandemic, the actions our people are taking for nature, and how we’re helping new audiences to take their first steps to save nature.
