A gift in your will to BTO

Pledge a gift in your will to BTO and inspire action for a wildlife-rich world.

Pass on something wonderful and inspire the next generation of birders

David Walsh is a loyal BTO member and enthusiastic volunteer who has decided to leave a gift in his
will to BTO to inspire the next generation of birders:

Inspiring young people was the main reason I decided to include BTO in my will, but it wasn’t the only one. I enjoy taking part in both the weekly Garden BirdWatch and the annual Breeding Bird Survey; the way BTO uses data from volunteers to underpin a range of fascinating scientific research really sets the standard.

However large or small the contribution you’d like to make, you’ll be helping us shape what the future will look like for our birds.
