          By joining the biggest community of bird lovers in Australia, you can help us make a positive impact on the future of our native birdlife. The members of BirdLife Australia, along with our supporters and partners, have been powerful advocates for native birds and the conservation of their habitats since 1901.

          We are also the meeting ground for everyone with an interest in birds from the curious backyard observer to the dedicated research scientist. It doesn’t matter what your interest in birds is or how much you know about them, your membership will offer you the opportunity to increase your awareness and enjoyment.

          Birdlife Australia would be delighted to welcome you as a new member and we look forward to sharing our news and achievements with you throughout the coming year.


          The traditions of scientific research, monitoring and evaluation have resonated throughout BirdLife Australia's long history. Early in the 20th century we initiated Australia's first bird banding project on Short-tailed Shearwaters. At the same time we called for the protection of persecuted species such as the Pied Imperial-Pigeon. Today we use sophisticated mapping tools to identify priority habitat for a large range of threatened birds, as well as using good old-fashioned survey methods and people power to monitor Australia's bird populations. Listing of birds in danger on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species is a direct result of our robust research and concerted action.

          Much of our research is intertwined with on-ground conservation projects, guided by our Bird Conservation Strategy.

          The priorities are developed by our staff in consultation with the BirdLife Australia Research and Conservation Committee (RACC), a group of expert scientists and conservationists volunteering their time to help Australia's birds. These priorities are an evolving set, under constant review, and provide a framework for assessing new project proposals and planning future research.
