BirdLife Australia is leading the way in bird conservation. We work tirelessly to recover the most threatened wild bird species and restore local environments.
By telling us about the birds you’ve seen within a 20-minute period, you will help BirdLife Australia develop an understanding of local birds while getting to know the wildlife on your doorstep.
Native birds, like the Silvereye, Powerful Owl, and Australian Ringneck, are disappearing from our backyards. Unless we act now, the diversity of backyard birds will be gone.
Who will take out the prestigious honour of being crowned Bird of the Year in 2023? With victories to the Australian Magpie, Black-throated Finch and Superb Fairy-wren in previous polls, the field is wide open.
To save birds, we need reliable data. Birdata is where we collect, keep and share this information. Compiled almost entirely by citizen scientists, Birdata is Australia's largest and longest running database for birds, with more than 22 million records (and counting).
Our planet is facing mass extinction and needs our help. We have partnered with other global conservation organisations to protect our most important places for nature. These places are called Key Biodiversity Areas.
Urban sprawl has a huge impact on native birds. BirdLife Australia's Urban Bird Program protects birds and their habitats across our rapidly changing and expanding cities.
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.
