RSPB funds conservation of marshes in Poland

The RSPB have yet a again made history. They are providing several thousand pounds to support the management of marshes in Poland that host 80% of the threatened species in Europe. It is a shame that we are having such an impact on the environment and continuing to inflict such destruction. I recently went to a lecture on the conservation of bumblebees. A little known fact is that 3 bumblebees have become nationally extinct due to man's pressure on the environment. Many more species are under threat. Unfortunately, these poor creatures that are vital to the functioning of our ecosystems (especially for pollination) do no receive the sort of coverage they deserve. A recently set-up Bumblebee Conservation Trust is trying to remedy this. Please be generous with your donations.
