“We give a voice to our birds”
What we want
BirdLife works for the protection of birds and the conservation of nature in Austria and across borders. BirdLife Österreich realises scientifically sound nature and bird protection projects in four core areas:
• Species protection
• Protection of regions and habitats
• Awareness raising
What we do
With comprehensive research projects and studies like the Red List of Austrian Birds (Frühauf 2005) or the atlas of breeding birds in Austria, BirdLife Österreich has made a vital contribution to research and conservation of Austria’s biodiversity since its establishment in 1950.
An important component of the work of BirdLife Österreich is the preparation of studies on the implementation of the Birds Directive and the NATURA 2000 network in Austria.
Guided bird-watching excursions in Austria and abroad as well as participative actions for persons interested in birds, like “Die Stunde der Wintervögel“, „BirdRace“, or experiencing bird migration on the European BirdWatchDay supplement the programme of BirdLife Österreich.
