Australasian Seabird Group
The Australasian Seabird Group, the oldest of BirdLife Australia's Special Interest Groups, was formed in 1971. Our objectives are to promote seabird research and conservation in Australasia. We pursue these through a range of activities, including publication of a bulletin and other seabird material, organisation of symposia of issues affecting seabirds, provision of expert opinion on the management and conservation of seabird populations in Australasia, and the coordination of projects including surveys of seabird islands and beach patrol projects.

BirdLife Southern NSW
BirdLife Southern NSW covers NSW and the ACT south of a rough line from Port Macquarie on the east coast to Tamworth, down to Dubbo, through Nyngan, Cobar and Wilcannia before ending at Broken Hill on the western border, excluding those centres in the post code range of 2570 to 2580 which fall within the catchment area of BirdLife Southern Highlands. This large region contains diverse ecological habitats, from temperate rainforests on the east coast and Dividing Range, through drier eucalypt woodlands to the semi-arid rangelands in the west. BirdLife Southern NSW is also home to the Discovery Bird Centre.
BirdLife Top End
The BirdLife Australia Top End branch is a central forum for community activities centred around the conservation of birds in the Top End region. Through the branch, members will gain access to educational resources, workshops, events, excursions and outings, and the knowledge to best protect the birdlife that so many people love. The BirdLife Australia Top End branch aligns with the core values of BirdLife Australia to make a real and positive difference for Australia’s birds. This is done through monitoring programs, representation and advocacy for birds under threat, and sharing knowledge between community members, groups and Indigenous owners that manage the land on which birds belong.
