BirdLife Australia is leading the way in bird conservation. We work tirelessly to recover the most threatened wild bird species and restore local environments.
Tragically, very few of these beautiful birds now remain – the estimated wild population is just 100 mature individuals. Over 80% of the Kyloring population has been lost to severe fires since 2009. Their population is rapidly declining and they are at risk of disappearing forever.
Swift Parrots are one of the only parrots in the world that migrates every year, making the long journey from Tasmania to mainland Australia in search of flowering gum trees. Yet, bushfires and continued native forest logging threaten this incredible bird's existence.
Our national laws are not doing enough to halt the extinction crisis. To make a difference, we need our representatives to deliver stronger nature laws.
Australia's migratory shorebirds are incredible, many flying to and from the Northern Hemisphere every year. But sadly, because of the destruction of their habitats, hunting, and disturbance, their numbers have declined greatly.
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.
This program focuses on the conservation of wetland and waterways and the birds they support.
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.
