Welcome to the South East Essex RSPB Local Group
The RSPB is the country’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life once again. We also play a leading role in a worldwide partnership of nature conservation organisations. The South East Essex RSPB Local Group supports the National RSPB in carrying out the Society's objectives in the Thames Estuary area.
We have a very active, lively and friendly local group and we are always looking to recruit new members and would welcome anyone wishing to join us. Please contact us to find out how you can get involved. and how to help us raise funds to contribute directly to projects undertaken by the RSPB so that we can support our local and national wildlife and support the 'Giving Nature a Home' campaign.
During our season, which runs from May through to September, we have many events such as indoor lectures, field walks and coach trips that you would be more than welcome to join - take a look at our calendar of events page for details of all of these and more.
Speakers for Your Group or Club
The RSPB South East Essex Local Group have speakers for local clubs, societies and social groups that provide fully illustrated talks for people of all ages - no group is too small. There is no set fee but we would ask that a donation of your choice is made to the local RSPB Group.
Our most popular talks are:
Natures reserves - the last sanctuaries.

Note that the length of all our talks can be adjusted to your requirements. To book a talk for your group or society, please call the Group Leader - see details on our list of contacts page.
