BirdLife International

BirdLife International is the world’s largest nature conservation Partnership. With more than 120 national Partners worldwide, BirdLife is driven by the belief that local people, working for nature in their own places but connected nationally and internationally through its global Partnership, are the key to sustaining all life on this planet. This unique local-to-global approach delivers high impact and long-term conservation for the benefit of nature and people.


BirdLife is widely recognised as the world leader in bird conservation. Rigorous science informed by practical feedback from projects on the ground in important sites and habitats enables BirdLife to implement successful conservation programmes for birds and all nature.


BirdLife is the Red List Authority for birds on the IUCN Red List, coordinating the process of evaluating all of the world’s bird species against the Red List categories and criteria in order to assess their extinction risk.
