BirdLife and its Partners are fighting to protect crucial breeding grounds from the urgent threats they face. With your support, we can use our skills and expertise to keep breeding grounds safe, so today’s babies can grow to raise families of their own in years to come.

Your support will help us to:

  • Campaign for real change, to the people that matter, like our #LivingLand campaign. Fighting against intensive agriculture practices that have brought Europe’s farmland birds – such as the Lapwing – to the brink, with population declines of over 55% in recent decades. We’re using our influence and expertise to push for reform at the very top.
  • Combat the threat of invasive predators - one of the leading causes of bird extinctions worldwide. Defenceless baby birds have no way of protecting themselves from these alien invaders, and often die in agony. But the situation CAN be reversed. We recently cleared five Pacific islands of invasive predators, and we’re already seeing evidence of rare birds bouncing back. We need your support to continue our work in threatened bird paradises such as Rapa Iti.
  • Help us push for formal protection for the world’s most vital breeding grounds. These crucial habitats have been identified by BirdLife as Important Bird & Biodiversity Areas – a global network of over 13,000 sites. Nearly half of these sites lack full protection, but with your help, we can push for change, and continue co-ordinating critical conservation action on the ground. 

Thank you to Michael and Paula Webster (BirdLife Species Champions for the Hooded Grebe) for their support.
