Finland – BirdLife Finland
BirdLife Finland is the parent organization of 30 regional bird societies working together in Finland for the protection of birds and to promote birdwatching and sustainable use of natural resources. We have over 22 000 members and annual donors. BirdLife Finland’s strength lies in the member societies and their active birdwatchers.
“20% of Finns say they are bird enthusiasts and the number has increased significantly over the decades. This is what we are especially proud of and it encourages us in our work every day. Thanks to our internet-based events, we reach all Finns from the coast to the fells and the Big Garden Birdwatch has become Finland’s largest nature event.”
