Gift Membership

A gift for your loved one, and for nature. The threats to the natural world are huge. But by giving the gift of RSPB membership they will join 1.2 million people who are helping to protect wildlife and the special places they live. This summer, membership is a pass to new adventures.

It gives your loved one unlimited free access to 170 nature reserves. Here they can step foot into some of the UK’s most treasured landscapes to spot iconic wildlife.

 

They will receive a Welcome Pack to help them get the most out of their membership. Four times a year we will also send them our award-winning magazine crammed full of features about the wildlife and wild places you love.

As a thank you for helping us protect nature, adult and family members can also get a free copy of either the RSPB Handbook of British Birds or the RSPB Handbook of Garden Wildlife*.

 

*Please note, joining gifts can only be sent to UK addresses, and may occasionally be substituted if demand is high.
