Latvian Ornithological Society (LOB)
Our mission is to conserve viable and diverse fauna of wild birds of Latvia. The Latvian Ornithological Society (Latvijas Ornitologijas biedriba – LOB) is the largest nongovernmental nature conservation organisation in Latvia that works on bird and habitat protection in order to maintain the numbers, diversity and geographic distribution of important sites, species and habitats in Latvia.
We combine the efforts of both professional and voluntary ornithologists and all bird conservation enthusiasts for bird study and conservation work. LOB also aims to raise public awareness of ornithology, nature and bird conservation by organising workshops and meetings, consulting and lecturing, publishing informative materials and maintaining regular contacts with media.
