About the organisation

Organisation Name : BirdLife Australia

As Australia’s only national bird conservation charity, we are on a mission to put birds and nature on the path to recovery within a decade, leading and facilitating action that halts biodiversity loss and restores ecosystems. We can only achieve this with the help and support afforded to us by our diverse stakeholders - donors and philanthropists, individual and corporate supporters, and like-minded conservation organisations.

BirdLife Australia is a diverse organisation with more than 200,000 supporters, donors, volunteers, campaigners and members, over 60 staff across Australia, and a network of more than 40 voluntary community groups.

Our growing network of people generously give their time, expertise, voice and financial support, standing together with us to help protect Australia’s unique bird life.

BirdLife Australia takes a science and evidence-based approach to bird conservation. Where strong conservation plans are in place and well-resourced the evidence tells us that threatened species can be brought back from the brink of extinction. With a 100-plus year history and Australia’s strongest and longest-lived collection of data and surveys, BirdLife Australia brings a wealth of observation and experience to the protection of native birds.
