Birds Australia (BA)

Carlton, Victoria - Australia

We are a national organisation working for the conservation and protection of Australia's native birds and their habitats. There are almost as many types of people who are into birds as there are birds themselves. There are scientists who study them, observers who watch them, twitchers who chase after them, conservationists who want to protect them and members of the general public who just like having birds in their lives. What these diverse groups have in common is Birds Australia. Since 1901, Birds Australia (formerly the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union) has been bringing together people who care about birds. More than just a research organisation, BA is a passionate advocate for the protection of our birds and the habitats on which they depend. As Australia's birds face unprecedented challenges to their survival- habitat destruction, feral predators, climate change- Birds Australia is in there, working with the Australian community to speak out on behalf of our amazing birdlife. Our mission is to halt the loss of our native birds. To do this we must protect what is left of our native vegetation and restore environmental health to our landscapes by repairing what has been degraded and replacing what has been lost. Many people contribute in a variety of ways to help us achieve our objective of conserving Australia's bird life. Little would be achieved without the generous financial contribution of 15,000 Members and Supporters.
