Welcome to the Global Birding Initiative!

We’re an online birding hub providing resources to help you with bird identification, as well as insights on bird biology and conservation.

A key part of our mission is to share our passion for birding, and thereby to inspire others to become birders.

We believe that birds are powerful symbols of the beauty and fragility of our natural environment, and that by promoting an interest in birding, we can help to inspire more people to actively participate in the protection of nature.

We also believe that by sharing our passion for birding, we can help to create a growing community of like minded individuals who are willing to work together to help secure the future of our natural heritage.
