Albatrosssos

Manmade threats mean 15 of the 22 species of Albatross are facing extinction. It’s estimated 100,000 birds are killed as bycatch every year in fisheries. But BirdLife and our Partners are turning the tide on extinction.

People are destroying and consuming nature at a devastating rate. Birds are our early warning system. BirdLife International is the largest international Partnership for nature conservation. 

We are a global family of over 115 national partners covering all continents, landscapes and seascapes.

It’s Time:

100 years of BirdLife

A century ago, visionary conservationists concerned about the plight of the world’s birds and the wider environment came together to form an international movement. Rooted in the foundations of a handful of campaigning national organisations, it steadily gathered momentum, spread its wings and eventually evolved into a powerful global voice for nature.
