BirdLife Australia is the result of the merger of Birds Australia and Bird Observation & Conservation Australia (BOCA). BirdLife Australia is an independent, not-for-profit organisation with the aim of creating a bright future for Australia’s birds through the conservation of their habitats.
Work over decades has shown that BirdLife Australia’s conservation efforts are most effective when we focus our activities at a regional scale, to particular species or by concentrating on specific sites of interest. Much of their work is done by a network of Local Branches and Special Interest Groups through Reserves and Observatories.
