 New stretch target

In this critical decade for our climate and environment, we need to scale up investments into solutions that can have a direct positive impact for our communities and surrounding ecosystems. 

We know that restoration projects are expensive, and that there is endless work to be done to protect and see nature thrive. RSPB Scotland works both on large landscape-scale partnership projects and on some smaller community based projects. 

Each pound that we are raising helps us to do more for nature, allowing more work to happen faster. Your donation might mean one extra native tree will be planted, another hectare of precious peatland is restored, or more wild seeds will be distributed to farmers to provide birds with food and places to nest. More nature will be given in a chance in Scotland.
