Say Yes to the RSPB

Say Yes to the RSPB

The RSPB has a fantastic track record of achieving amazing results for nature. And we couldn't do this without the tremendous support given and actions taken by our members and supporters. This includes you, our fantastic Local Group members. Together, we do great things for nature.

Now we're asking our members and supporters to "Say Yes to the RSPB" and opt in to hearing from us on their terms. It's about them having more control over their relationship with us. It's about strengthening our connection.

We need existing members and supporters to opt in before May 2018 (when new rules come into effect) and give their express permission for us to contact them. If they don't, we won't be able to keep in touch directly about our work and developments, about getting involved, and about supporting the RSPB in other ways - for example, through volunteering, supporting an appeal or taking part in an activity or campaign. We will be able only to contact those people about their membership and/or in their existing role as a volunteer.

As a member of a Local Group, your support is invaluable to the RSPB. We'd love you to "Say Yes" and tell us how you want to hear from us in the future. Were we unable to contact you or ask for your help when nature needs it, our ability to work for nature would be greatly diminished.

If you're an RSPB member and receive winter's Nature's Home, make sure you read the letter from Mike and make your opt-in choices online, via our dedicated phone line or by filling in and returning the paper form. If you've already made your choices, thanks very much.

If you aren't a member, as an active supporter you can make your opt-in choices now. Go to or call 0300 777 2610 (open Monday-Friday, 9am-8pm, calls charged at standard rate). Please also help us by encouraging family and friends who are RSPB members or supporters to make their choices too.

The passion and commitment of our members and supporters keeps the RSPB going in our work for nature. Saying "Yes" will keep us strong. And please do the same for all those other nature conservation charities you might support. We need to stay together to help save nature.

Thank you!
