About the organisation

Organisation name : Birdlife Western Australia

Who we are: Birdlife Western Australia is a branch of the Birdlife Australia network.

BirdLife Australia is the country’s largest organisation devoted to the future of our native birdlife. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we are dedicated to conserving Australia's birds and their habitats through advocacy, targeted research, on-groundwork and monitoring.

Our work over decades has shown that our conservation efforts are most effective when we focus our activities at a regional scale, to particular species or by concentrating on specific sites of interest. Much of our work is done by our network of Local Branches and Special Interest Groups through our Reserves and Observatories. Together, they form the BirdLife Australia Family.
