MAKING AN IMPACT FOR NATURE

MAKING AN IMPACT FOR NATURE

LIVERPOOL RSPB's Annual Donation has been allocated to the Gough Island Restoration programme.
A cheque for £1,500 has gone to RSPB Northern England from the Liverpool group. THANKS to all our members and supporters for helping us raise funds for these important programmes.

Gough Island has been described as one of the most important seabird nesting sites in the world. But many of the birds which nest here are now under threat, including the Critically Endangered and iconic Tristan albatross - one of only two Critically Endangered British birds.

This year the RSPB and its partners will try to eradicate the house mice on Gough and make it a seabird paradise once again. The project was originally scheduled to go ahead in 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic meant the RSPB and the Tristan da Cunha government had to abandon these plans and airlift the team home. With the delays the project now has a significant funding deficit.

If you would like to help close this funding gap, you can donate directly to the restoration project at
