WHAT WE DO

We take action for Species, Sites, Systems and Societies

INVASIVE SPECIES CONTROL

We carry out projects to clear and control the spread of invasive species in Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs)/Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs).

SPECIES MONITORING AND RESEARCH

 We carry out projects to halt the decline of bird species and reduce human-induced threats to wild birds while increasing community benefits through avi-tourism and other nature-based livelihood opportunities.

EDUCATION AND AWARENESS

 We mobilise and engage people to support conservation and contribute to a just, equitable, rights-based society where nature is fundamental to our well-being.

WHY BIRDS?

Birds bring us closer to nature and make us aware of the global crisis of biodiversity. Apart from their beauty, they are natural indicators of ecosystem health!
