For nearly 100 years, the not-for-profit organisation has been working
pro-actively to conserve and protect birds, their habitats and biodiversity
within the Australasian region.  Birds Australia is Australia?s largest

action to prevent population decline and habitat loss.

Projects are wide-ranging and include nationwide surveys, threatened
species recovery plans and publication of authoritative ornithological
reference works. At present, Birds Australia conducts approximately 30
projects each year, though this is now increasing.  It employees 60 people,
based around Australia.

Birds Australia?s national office is in Melbourne, with regional offices in

groups that focus on regional issues and the particular needs of certain
groups of birds, respectively.
