Welcome to the British Trust for Ornithology Raffle

Help our nation’s birds by taking part in our Spring Raffle.

BTO and our dedicated army of volunteers gather data on birds across the UK and provide information to inform their conservation and that of the habitats on which they depend.

It’s through this work that BTO is able to provide vital information on the populations of seabirds throughout the British Isles. This research can reveal the effects of a changing climate and offer solutions that minimise the potential impacts of new marine renewable schemes.

Arctic Skua populations have experienced losses of 81% in some Scottish colonies, and they are thought to be our most rapidly declining seabird. A programme of work to address the reasons behind this large decline has started. But we need your support to continue this in 2019.

You can help by playing our raffle. Funds raised will ensure the urgently needed research can take place.

Thank you for your support

Who are BTO?

The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is an independent charitable research institute combining professional and citizen science aimed at using evidence of change in wildlife populations, particularly birds, to inform the public, opinion-formers and environmental policy- and decision-makers. Our impartiality enables our data and information to be used both by Government and NGO campaigners.

Our long-term monitoring data on the status of UK birds sets the standard worldwide for understanding the effects of environmental change on wildlife. Over 40,000 volunteer birdwatchers, in partnership with professional research scientists, collect high quality monitoring data on birds and other wildlife. The combination of professional ecologists, long-term datasets some in excess of 50 years, and volunteers participating all over the country gives the BTO a unique, impartial and knowledgeable voice in nature conservation.
