BirdLife is a global family of over 110 national conservation organizations who work both on a local level, and as part of the global BirdLife Partnership, forming a collaboration far greater than the sum of its parts.
Together we influence local, national and regional governments, work with international agreements, and engage with the private sector to bring about smarter and more sustainable decision-making. Our advocacy lays the groundwork for better environmental and social policies and practices. On the ground, we work alongside indigenous people, local communities and youth groups to power effective conservation action.
Together we strive to engage, educate and mobilise the general public to support and be champions of nature. We push for a just and equitable society where we acknowledge that nature is fundamental to our well-being.
We aim to make positive change to nature and society in four key areas:
- More people reached through awareness and engagement
- No net loss of nature commitments by sectors, commodity chains, and companies
- More people actively supporting nature conservation
- More of financial firms mainstreaming nature in their investments, and reporting/risk assessments

The tropical forests of Asia and the Western Pacific are special. Their lush landscapes are havens to an astounding variety of life found nowhere else. These forests don’t just benefit nature, they benefit local people and all of us across the entire globe. However, these forests are in trouble. Human populations are growing rapidly, agriculture is expanding resulting in the clearing of vast swathes of forest, and illegal logging is rife.
The Americas Flyways Initiative (AFI) was officially presented at The Climate Week in New York as a cohesive and relevant opportunity for synergy, integration, and harmonious coexistence that unites people and nature beyond borders, seeking healthy and prosperous environments.
The marine waters of West Africa’s coast are highly productive, supporting numerous seabird species. However, these birds are threatened by bycatch, overfishing, climate change, their habitat destruction, and invasive alien species (IAS) among others.
