BirdLife Australia provides a range of opportunities to learn more about birds. There is always something new to find out about the birds in your garden, your local park or your next holiday destination. Learn about why birds behave the way they do and what you can do to assist their conservation.
Birds live in a range of habitats making them useful indicators of what is happening in the world around us. Across the globe and throughout Australia, birds take exciting journeys to search for food, to follow the rain and look for breeding sites. Learning about birds helps you connect with the natural world and helps us understand more about the environment we live in.
BirdLife Australia has a long and proud history of excellence in publishing.
We have always published a magazine for our members in various incarnations, most recently as Wingspan and The Bird Observer. Now BirdLife Australia will unite these in an exquisite, full colour magazine that brings you the latest and greatest on birds, birdwatching, conservation, and the people behind it all – Australian BirdLife.
Our earliest publication was the Emu which began life as a newsletter and has since grown into a world class scientific journal Emu - Austral Ornithology, complemented by every birdwatcher’s favourite periodical, Australian Field Ornithology.
The State of Australia's Birds (SOAB) draws on information generated by BirdLife Australia's research and conservation projects and prevailing scientific knowledge to focus attention on major conservation issues.
The Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds (HANZAB) is a seven volume set that contains everything we know about the Australian birds.
