Donate to help save our majestic Swifties!

We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to secure new strong national nature laws that address the key threat pushing our Critically Endangered Swift Parrot to extinction – habitat destruction by native logging. But we can’t do this without you.

Toondah Harbour: Save the Bay

To protect the critically endangered Eastern Curlew and many other threatened species, it is vital that the Federal Government save Toondah Harbour. The Walker Corporation's proposal will permanently destroy many hectares of irreplaceable migratory shorebird feeding habitat.

Act now

We've identified 334 Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) across Australia. These are the irreplaceable biodiversity hotspots that birds can't live without.


We've helped release hundreds captive-bred Regent Honeyeaters in Victoria and NSW to boost the population of this critically endangered species.


On crowded beaches, Hooded Plover chicks are now 400% more likely to fledge successfully thanks to the work of our Beach-nesting Birds team.
