Will you help protect the rarest of the rare?

More than one in eight species is threatened with extinction


This year, we celebrate BirdLife’s 100th anniversary. A century on, BirdLife is a global voice for nature. We work with 117 partners around the globe, with a legacy of protecting the natural world. You are part of that legacy.

You are a lifeline for species on the brink of extinction, like the Fatu Hiva Monarch.

Critically Endangered, only 18 birds remain on its tiny island home in the Pacific. Four are female. As recently as 40 years ago this large flycatcher was abundant in the island’s native forests. But since Black Rats arrived in the 1990’s the population has plummeted. Feral cats and disease also plague this glossy black bird, but the situation could be much worse.

Without the intervention of SOP Manu (BirdLife in French Polynesia), the Fatu Hiva Monarch would almost certainly have gone extinct. An emergency plan set in motion in 2016 has protected the birds that remain. By trapping and neutering rats and cats, and protecting every nest. This is one species with a chance to survive, but so many are at risk.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows BirdLife International to claim tax back on eligible donations. If you pay tax in the UK, it means that for every £1 you donate to BirdLife International we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like BirdLife International to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that BirdLife International will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When BirdLife International receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
