          Our education programs are friendly, hands-on activities where sharing knowledge and experiences is emphasised.

          BirdLife Australia staff and volunteers know and love birds. They have access to training and resources to help them guide your discovery of birds in their natural habitat.

          The BirdLife National Education Committee is made up of people for whom environmental education, particularly about birds, is important. Their collective experience provides insights that assist development of our  programs and education activities.

          Our team of volunteer educators are always looking for new people to help out. By becoming a volunteer educator you can share your knowledge with community groups, beginner birders and schools.

          Kids and Birds

          Today’s young birders are tomorrow’s conservationists

          There is a whole new world to explore outside your door. In the park or your backyard among the trees and shrubs birds are looking for food, building a nest or singing with their own bird voice. To help you discover more about this world you can choose one of our colouring sheets below in the downloads section.

          The Wing Thing

          The Wing Thing is our special magazine just for kids. Because education is one of the best tools in our efforts to save native birds, it is important to ensure that young people understand that they can help. To allow kids to step into the shoes of some of Australia's birds, check out The Wing Thing, a kid-friendly magazine and related interactive website to fire their imagination on Hooded Plovers and Swift Parrots and Shorebirds. Download the magazines below.

          Beaks, Feet and Feathers

          This education resource was originally developed by Birds Australia. The pilot involved 9 schools that as a result of surveying birds in their school grounds made changes to improve bird habitat. They installed nest boxes, bird baths, planted indigenous plants and changed the school’s waste management practices.

          Use Beaks, Feet and Feathers to help you start monitoring birds in your own school ground. Birds can be excellent indicators of environmental health and learning more about them and their habitat needs provides an exciting introduction to understanding biodiversity.

          Western Port Shorebirds Education Kit

          The purpose of this education kit is to guide teachers and their students through a fun and informative exploration of shorebirds. This kit has been specifically designed for primary schools located in the Western Port area but contains plenty of information about shorebirds and wetlands that can be found in many parts of Australia.

          BirdLife Australia hopes that this kit inspires you to experience the wonders of shorebirds. Studying shorebirds with your class can take you on a journey of discovery to other parts of the world as you follow the travels of migratory shorebirds flying from Alaska and Siberia to Australia and back every year.
