A Community for BirdLife

BirdLife International and it’s partner organizations do quite a lot for the global conservation of birds and habitats. Considering that we’re already caught in the age of extinction, that’s no small feat. Part of their task to preserve biodiversity made easier by how birds so easily capture our attention. But they, as with other NGOs, are also doing a good job in minimizing biodiversity loss by building a community of environmentally literate spokespersons. Their unifying goals:

  • prevent the extinction of any bird species
  • maintain and where possible improve the conservation status of all bird species
  • conserve and where appropriate improve and enlarge sites and habitats important for birds
  • help, through birds, to conserve biodiversity and to improve the quality of people’s lives
  • integrate bird conservation into sustaining people’s livelihoods.

It’s straightforward, and aimed at preserving nature for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren to enjoy 100 years from now. And BirdLife is putting the best news from its 100 or so partner organizations into one place so that this global community stays informed and supporting each others’ efforts.
