BirdLife South Africa
BirdLife South Africa is the only dedicated bird conservation organisation in South Africa. We focus our efforts on the conservation of South Africa’s most threatened birds, as well as on protecting IBAs and KBAs. We have a large and growing membership, with our members receiving our bi-monthly African Birdlife magazine. Increasingly, BirdLife South Africa is undertaking work in the southern African region, especially to support other BirdLife Partners and to support the RSPB’s East Atlantic Flyway conservation efforts.
“We at BirdLife South Africa believe there is hope. We believe that if we look after the natural world, the natural world will look after us.”
