Our Partnership

The BirdLife Partnership is active in 39 of Africa’s 59 countries and territories through national BirdLife organisations or project work. The BirdLife Africa Partnership has identified more than 1250 sites of importance for birds and biodiversity (Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas) throughout the African continent and surrounding islands. Through a broad agenda focusing on birds and other biodiversity, and the protection and management of Important Bird Areas, BirdLife Partners in Africa are involved in research, conservation action, environmental education, sustainable development, and poverty alleviation.
