We are a global family of over 115 national Partners covering all continents, landscapes and seascapes.
With regional offices in Accra, Amman, Brussels, Cambridge, Nairobi, Singapore, Suva, Tokyo, and Quito, we are the largest international partnership for nature conservation. We have over 13 million individual members and supporters, and unify over 100 nature conservation organisations from across the planet.
We share a belief that people working for nature in their own local patch, connected to others elsewhere, is the key to sustaining all life on this planet. Our unique local-to-global approach delivers high impact and long-term conservation for the benefit of nature and people.
Our Focus areas
We organize our work strategically around Species, Sites, Society and Systems – linking up birds, habitats and nature, and people.
We take a critical look at the ways in which we consume our natural resources and the choices we make in areas such as finance, government policy, land and sea use.
In this way we can tackle effectively the underlying causes of the destruction of our planet, change our behavior and our choices to ensure our children’s and grandchildren’s future.
We are working to save the planet, nature and bird species all over the world in many different ways. Here are just a handful of stories that show the diverse and impactful work we do.
As the world’s largest nature conservation partnership, with local roots and global reach informed by internationally-recognised science, BirdLife is uniquely placed to help guide and develop the post-2020 framework and mobilise support for its implementation.
Our planet is in the midst its sixth mass extinction event, with climate change, habitat destruction and other human activities devastating the diversity of life on the planet. But while the crisis is undeniably urgent, there’s also hope. Humans may create huge challenges – but with enough support, dedication and resources, we can also reverse them.
Red: a colour of alarm, urgency, passion and energy. For most conservationists, “The Red List” evokes all four of these feelings, perhaps all at once. The Red List tells us which species are most in danger and which to conserve first. It’s also a powerful tool for persuading governments to protect threatened species.
