          Through our conservation policies BirdLife Australia makes credible and objective statements about the key conservation issues facing our birds.

          Most of the issues we engage in are complex, involving people from all walks of life that have priorities which may differ from ours. BirdLife Australia’s policies guide our responses, allowing the organisation to have a consistent approach and enabling us to cut through the complexity to determine what’s best for Australia’s birds.
