Birdwatching, citizen science and public talks are focal activities in our work where we engage almost 2,000 volunteers, and have the support of 17,500 members.
“Birds are life and happiness, that is why I am so fond of them. And working with birds provides fantastic experiences with other people.”

“I can’t imagine nature without birds! Birds should be everywhere. That’s why I am a member of Birdlife Denmark whose efforts on conservation, protection and promotion are highly respected.”

Last Tuesday, the European Parliament gave its final approval of the EU Nature restoration law during its monthly plenary session in Strasbourg and a collective sigh of relief passed through our office. This groundbreaking law still requires a final rubber stamping from the national governments in the European Council. It would mark a world-first: a comprehensive attempt to rebuild damaged ecosystems to bring back biodiversity and help combating the impacts of climate change.
Today, the European Parliament adopted the trilogue agreement on the Nature Restoration Law. They listened to the calls of over 1 million citizens, businesses, scientists and NGOs, and have paved the way for this first-of-its-kind law to become a reality.
