For the Love of Birds : Story of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds by T. Samstag



The original members of the RSPB were all women who campaigned against the fashion of the time for women to wear exotic feathers in hats, and the consequent encouragement of "plume hunting". To this end the Society had two simple rules:. That Members shall discourage the wanton destruction of Birds, and interest themselves generally in their protection. That Lady-Members shall refrain from wearing the feathers of any bird not killed for purposes of food, the ostrich only excepted.

The problems facing birds, other wildlife and the environment are large and complex. To make the greatest impact, the RSPB has nature recovery groups which prioritise species, habitats and sites, setting clear objectives for each.
