Good natured gifts from the RSPB

The RSPB have developed a fantastic 'good natured virtual gift' scheme that allows you to support their vital work whilst giving a gift to your family member or loved one.

In the same way that other charities such as UNICEF, Oxfam and Christian Aid have developed virtual gift schemes that allow you to send practical gift to families in the developing world whilst giving a meaningful gift at the same time, the RSPB have developed an equivalent scheme that helps to protect animals.

It is very quick and easy to send your 'good natured gift'. All you do is visit the web site, choose a gift, and then select a card with a personal message to send to your loved one on whose behalf the charity gift is being given.

For example, you could give 40 trees to be planted in the Harapan rainforest, Indonesia. This is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, and its been damaged by years of logging and exploitation. When you purchase the virtual gift, your friend or loved one will receive a special card explaining what has been given on their behalf, and even a free 'agile gibbon' pin badge.

Or perhaps you'd prefer to give an acre of vital rainforest? Rainforests recycle carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, and their vast breeding grounds for wildlife, many species of which have yet to be discovered. On top of a stylish RSPB greeting card and explanatory gift card, the recipient of your gift will also get a free Sumatran tiger pin badge!

If you want to help protect the environment, and in particular ensure the survival of many species of birds, why not purchase an RSPB 'good natured gift' today? You'll get a free copy of Wildlife on your Doorstep too, to help you explore the exciting wildlife in not-so-exotic Britain!
