AboutBirdLife Africa


BirdLife Africa Division is one of the six regional offices of BirdLife International, a global Partnership of over 115 autonomous, national non-governmental conservation organisations, covering all continents, landscapes and seascapes.

The BirdLife Africa Partnership is a growing network of 27 such organisations, with a combined total of more than 500 staff and 87,000 members. Through projects, BirdLife Africa is active in a further 15 countries, hence overall working in a total of 39 countries.

Our Mission is to conserve birds, their habitats and global biodiversity, working with people toward sustainability in the use of natural resources.

To support our partners and to successfully advance our ambitious nature conservation goals for the continent, BirdLife Africa is comprised of an international team of experts in conservation, science, policy, advocacy, capacity building, fundraising, communications, finance and administration.

Our activities

Through our unique local to global approach and the strength of our partnership, BirdLife Africa delivers long-term conservation solutions for the benefit of nature and people, all driven by scientific research. Our science is used to set priorities, inform action on the ground, and shape policy and advocacy.
