          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.

          In the wake of the bushfire crisis, we have been inundated with generous expressions of interest in volunteering with BirdLife Australia. 

          We understand that many of you are eager to help contribute. Right now, the best way you can help (in addition to donating) is to monitor birds in your area. These observations will be critical to informing post-recovery planning. When it is safe to do so, you can assist by conducting regular bird counts using a dedicated app called Birdata.

          Unusual and uncommon birds are showing up in our towns and cities seeking refuge from fires and drought. Whether you’re conducting a general Birdata or a Birds in Backyards survey, we’re interested in data from both burnt and unburnt sites. Remember, surveys where no birds are sighted are important, as is updated habitat information: simply noting whether the site is burnt or unburnt will be useful. This will assist us to identify refuges within fire affected areas and help us advocate for their protection. 

          Always remember, your personal safety is of the utmost importance above all else.

          Volunteer with Birdlife Australia to save our birds 

          Whilst BirdLife Australia oversees the implementation of recovery programs, campaigns, research, and conservation and fundraising efforts, saving species from extinction requires the help of many people.

          Volunteer for BirdLife Australia

          We have volunteers of all ages and from all backgrounds with a wide variety of experience, from Australia and overseas. Some offer office skills such as data entry, a crucial activity for the success of many of our projects. Others have taken part in one of our many bird conservation surveys, spent a day planting trees, taken time to monitor our beach-nesting birds, or helped to teach children about our beautiful birds.

          Each volunteer makes a valuable contribution to BirdLife Australia by donating their time and skills. As a volunteer with BirdLife Australia, you will actively contribute to creating a brighter future for Australia’s birds. Whatever your contribution, you can be assured that you add greatly to the longevity and strength of our projects.

          Office Activities & Administrative

          “The data entry, envelope-stuffing, letter-folding, writing, editing, designing, and project assistance that our volunteers help with means a lot to the BirdLife Australia office team. We trust our volunteers and know that we couldn’t do nearly as much to support our threatened birds without their invaluable contributions.”

          There are lots of projects on which volunteers help in our office, and a lot of office activities that need extra hands.

          Surveys and monitoring are only one of the steps in recording and understanding bird population trends. Another step is entering the valuable data, and that’s not a particularly easy part of the job. Many of our volunteers have a background in data entry and their work is really valuable. It saves time for our project team.

          If data entry isn't your thing, there are other important administrative tasks to do, such as editing newsletters, brochures and posters; manipulating geospatial data in GIS programs; processing donations for our fundraising team, or picking and packing orders for the e-store.

          If this sounds like something you would enjoy, we’d love to have you join our dedicated team of Office Volunteers.

          Education & Community Engagement

          “Providing Education & information at workshops, running stalls at festivals, organising activities in schools, erecting fences & signs on the beaches, inspiring others through photography... this is how our education volunteers share their passion for Australia’s endangered birds”.

          Education is one of the best tools to save native birds. Our volunteer educators share their knowledge and experiences with communities, birders and schools.  They raise community awareness, understanding and involvement in the conservation of threatened birds. They explain to a diverse public how to identify birds and about which birds are doing well and which need our help and why. They also advise people

          on how to create bird-friendly habitats, how to identify migratory birds, and much, much more. They provide a great starting point for learning about sustainability and share their passion to ensure that young people understand that they can help. Some of our volunteers also inspire others to learn more about birds through their photography or their blogs. They are true ambassadors for our threatened birds.

          Why not share your knowledge and experience about endangered species as one of our Volunteer Educators?

          Habitat Monitoring & Recovery

          Planting native shrubs, grasses and trees, getting rid of the weeds and getting your hands dirty help to attract wildlife back to our backyards and bush.”

          Revegetation and restoration projects are long-term projects and require an investment of human resources, and that’s where our volunteers again play an integral role. Our volunteers are skilled in re-vegetation & weed control projects and know that what they are doing is going to attract wildlife back into the areas that have been cleared of native vegetation. Monitoring re-vegetated bush helps

          determine whether these works have been successful as the years go on. Some plants will provide roosting habitat, some trees will develop nesting hollows and some shrubs and grasses will provide vital cover and food for our tiny bush birds. Revegetation never just helps one species, but benefits a whole range of birds, animals and insects.

          Become one of our Habitat Monitoring & Recovery Volunteers  and help to protect our native birds by caring for their habitat.

          Species Monitoring & Recovery

          “Bird observation & identification, population & habitat surveys, community surveys and data collection... all of these take time, patience, and prudence, but for our intrepid volunteers it’s fun!”

          Our volunteers participate in field trips and conduct a variety of surveys to study bird populations and movements. The success of our research and conservation efforts is dependent on the intrepid volunteers we have in our field teams. Fully equipped with binoculars, spotting scopes, maps, GPS units, mobile phones,

          notebooks, appropriate clothing and field first aid kits, they bravely combat all the difficulties of fieldwork; bad weather, sun glare and changing tides. They face cliffs, soft sand, boggy mud, and biting insects, because they know how important the information they collect is to the future of our birds.

          Combine your passion for birds and sense of adventure as one of our Species Monitoring & Recovery Volunteers!

          Join Your Community:

          'Friends of' groups and community groups, like the various BirdLife branches, are a great way for on-the-ground action to be achieved, with locals in a region taking a stewardship-type approach to saving threatened birds. Many of these community groups are also actively engaged with our many conservation programs.

          These groups  coordinate activities such as revegetation programs, assisting with weeding or pest animal control, or effectively lobby local council and government.

          Responsible Landholding:

          As conservation biology has progressed, it has become clear that parks and reserves are not going to be able to protect all of our threatened species - a large amount of conservation will need to occur on private land. 

          Responsible landholding means actively engaging in revegetation and rehabilitation work on your property where possible.  This type of support is invaluable and certainly makes a difference in the fight for conservation.

          Lobby Government departments (local, state and Federal):

          Large amounts of funding and expertise comes from government departments.  Grants and assistance can be provided, and a number of programs are funded in this way (with the Australian Government's Natural Heritage Trust being one of the best examples of this).

          Lobbying your local, state, or federal member can be a powerful way of influencing change.
