Explore the megasites we're campaigning to save or develop to make home for wildlife.

Firth of Forth

Puffin Fratercula arctica, group, Isle of May National Nature reserve
The Firth of Forth is home to an abundance of bird species of international importance. However, industry, urban expansion and recreation all represent pressures on the integrity of the habitats of this region. In addition the Forth has been identified for extensive renewable offshore wind development which will see a further intensification of use over and above these existing pressures.

Strathy windfarms

RSPB Forsinard Flows; view from visitor trail, including snow-capped Ben Griam, Highland, Scotland.  November 10, 2010.
Strathy is a vast expanse of blanket bog habitat in Scotland's far North, much of which has been spoilt by inappropriate past planting of exotic conifers although it still holds breeding bird populations of international importance. We are fighting a fresh threat of inappropriate windfarms.

The Humber Estuary

 Humber estuary. Saltmarsh at Pyewipe, Grimsby.
The Humber is an internationally important place for wildlife but it is under pressure from industry, sea level rise and recreational disturbance.
