“I am not a hardcore birder, but love to understand the behaviour of birds, their environments and the problems they face. Through Birdlife I learn straight from the scientists, and can travel with experts on fun trips to wonderful wildlife destinations.”

“I joined the Rare Bird Club because, as Julia reminded me: ‘wildlife conservation has given you a great life, now it’s pay-back time’. It’s a good feeling to know our money helps BirdLife’s vital core funds.”

Richard Porter, Rare Bird Club member since 2008

“As never before, this is a time to support nature and I have found Birdlife´s Rare Bird Club an extraordinary venue to contribute. Since joining it has been a deeply fulfilling and insightful experience along like-minded individuals.”
