Mission of the organisation

The RSPB is the country’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so that our towns, coast and countryside will once again teem with life.

Key Activities

How does the RSPB take action?

The problems facing birds, other wildlife and the environment are large and complex. To make the greatest impact, the RSPB has nature recovery groups which prioritise species, habitats and sites, setting clear objectives for each. It also works with other partners, sometimes on a landscape-scale, to do all that it can to save nature.

The RSPB takes action by:

  • Monitoring and analysis
  • Identifying the changes and problems facing wild birds, wildlife and the environment so that it can direct support  where it is most needed
  • Lobbying governments and other organisations to do all they can to save nature
  • Encouraging everyone to give nature a home.
