Protect threatened songbirds with Family membership

let your child be wild

Research overwhelmingly confirms what parents know to be true: time in nature is good for children.

Active time spent outdoors contributes to physical health and being in nature encourages healthy emotional development too. Fostering a lifelong appreciation of the natural world, starting in childhood, is key to achieving our mission. Our songbirds need a generation of nature lovers with a deep appreciation of the natural world who will use their talents to protect it.

igniting passion

Our beautiful and lyrical songbirds give us so much pleasure. They have inspired poets, painters and musicians for centuries, yet today many species face an uncertain future.

More than half of our native songbirds are in decline and for some birds, like the greenfinch are critically low.

By joining SongBird Survival with a family membership, you will be helping to protect the birds you love and igniting a lifelong appreciation of the natural world for your children.
