Our Mission is to conserve birds, their habitats and global biodiversity, working with people toward sustainability in the use of natural resources.
If BirdLife International didn’t exist, you’d have to invent us.
People are destroying and consuming nature at a devastating rate. Birds are our early warning system.
We are a global family of over 115 national Partners covering all continents, landscapes and seascapes.
In order to save the planet, nature and species, we use our seminal bird science, collecting and analyzing data from around the world, to implement the most effective and innovative conservation measures possible.
We are the official scientific source of information on birds for the IUCN Red List.
Uniquely, we have also identified and documented more than 13,000 Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) which are places of global significance for the conservation of birds and other biodiversity, creating practical tools for conservation and a wider integrated approach to conservation and the sustainable use of the natural environment.
