The annual BirdFair organised by the RSPB is one of the major events in both the birdwatcher's calendar and the World Land Trust's.
At the BirdFair we get to meet many of our supporters, as well as lots of our conservation colleagues. And not unsurprisingly there is a degree of overlap between the species involved in the Preventing Extinctions Programme and the land purchases we are funding through our overseas partners. Because, again, not surprisingly, many of BirdLife International's partner organisations are also partner organisations of the WLT.
So put it in your diary now, third weekend in August, at Rutland Water Reserve. The BirdFair. The World Land Trust stand will be opposite that of the RSPB. Come and meet us. We would like to meet as many of you as possible. With or without your chequebooks.
