BirdLife Secretariat Annual Reviews and Finances

BirdLife International Annual  Review 2019-20


BirdLife International is a truly global partnership of environmental NGOs, national conservation organisations, all of whom share a common vision – to mobilise lasting, sustainable protection for the world’s birds, their habitats, and global biodiversity in general.

Together, we believe in a holistic approach to conservation – using the insight we gain from our rigorous studies on the health of the world’s bird species, to work for a world were nature and people live in harmony.
