BirdLife: The Magazine

Now available on iTunes and Android



The latest conservation news and breakthroughs, delivered to your door

Inside each issue of our quarterly magazine, we shine a light on the amazing, and sometimes dangerous, fieldwork our Partners are undertaking across the globe - from preventing albatrosses getting caught up and killed by fishing hooks in the middle of the ocean, to preserving natural areas of the Middle East ravaged by civil war.

With 122 national Partners around the world, BirdLife - The Magazine offers a truly global perspective on modern conservation issues, as well as some incredible real-life stories.


Exclusive articles and stunning photography

We have refreshed our magazine to make it bigger, brighter and better. Inside each issue you'll find:

  • Inspiring articles written by leading experts in birds and biodiversity
  • The latest breakthroughs and discoveries from our network of researchers
  • Stunning images from celebrated wildlife photographers
  • Insights into conservation projects straight from the field
  • Challenging debates on nature and conservation’s hottest topics
  • Spotlights on the threatened birds and habitats we simply can’t afford to lose
  • Interviews with both famous and unsung conservation and birding heroes
