How You Can Help

You can help us to safeguard our home by doing one or all of the following

1. Write to your MP

If you are a UK resident you can write to your local MP to ask for their support to help the Linnean Society stay at Burlington House.

After going public with the campaign earlier this year, we have gained a broad range of support inside and outside Parliament. A Westminster Hall Debate will take place 4.50-5.50pm on Tuesday 8th June in an attempt to find a lasting solution to stay at Burlington House and we encourage our supporters to ask their local Member of Parliament to attend.

This is a great opportunity to present our case and evidence to the Minister, and to highlight the public value at risk if relocation takes place.

Some bullet points are available in the link below for you to tailor and use for your own personalised email or letter.

If you don’t know who your MP is, you can find out along with their email address here.

If you are based outside of the United Kingdom and would also like to support the campaign, please contact our campaign team who can provide instructions on request.

2. Raise awareness on social media

You can help to get the message out by using the hashtag #BurlingtonHouse on social media channels and tagging us @LinneanSociety.

There are free-to-use images available here including Burlington House, our events and activities held there, and items from our natural history collections, library and archives.

Alternatively, use the buttons below to share this page directly.

3. Share your Society story and submit a testimonial to be published on our website

We would love to hear your stories of how the Linnean Society has helped to inspire you about the natural world or inform you of the significance of nature. Share your testimonial on what the Society means to you, and why you believe it should remain at Burlington House, here.
