Why should I donate?

Bird conservation is a long term effort and critically needed now more than ever.

Together we can:


Today, one in eight of the world’s 10,000+ bird species are threatened with extinction, of which more than 200 are categorized as Critically Endangered. BirdLife exists to save these most vulnerable species from extinction.


For almost 50 years, the BirdLife Partnership has worked collectively to identify, document and protect all places on earth of greatest significance for the conservation of the world’s birds. Over 12,000 Important Bird Areas (IBAs) have been identified and counting.

Save migrating birds

There is little point protecting a bird in one country if it faces peril in the next. As a global partnership, BirdLife is uniquely placed to protect birds along whole flyways.

Empower and engage

Working with people locally is critical to effective, sustainable and equitable conservation. This attention to local values and voices finds expression across BirdLife’s programs, from policy influence and poverty reduction to climate change adaptation and monitoring of species and sites.
