Rare Bird Club

The Rare Bird Club, founded by Birdlife International is an exclusive international community of currently around 300 individuals determined to make a difference through their high level of support.

The Club provides BirdLife International with unrestricted funding. This is the lifeblood needed to support the work of the Birdlife Global Partnership. In return the Club provides members with a social outlet and opportunity to meet other like minded people from all walks of life.

Member benefits include bespoke birding tours to see the work of BirdLife Partners in the field and invitations to a programme of Club events. Members also receive special newsletters and the opportunity to select a bird from the Club's checklist of 1,200 globally threatened species. This becomes a wildlife painting to be presented to the member at a Club event and meets with an original aim to have one member for each of the species listed.

All profits made from trips and events are ploughed back into BirdLife's work.
