There are literally thousands of Birding Organizations around the world! Some organizations cater to local birders -- in every corner of the globe. Other organizations draw together scientists working on taxonomic issues. Many global organizations work to preserve the habitat needed for the birds' survival. In many cases, an organization's members are actively involved in all three -- birding, scientific research and conservation!
The list below makes an effort to distinguish between organizations that are primarily birding organizations, organizations whose members are primarily scientists/ornithologists and organizations that focus mainly on conservation and education. The line is very fuzzy -- so look in all three places for your favorite organization. Maybe the table below will help:
|Birding sites||Hot Spots||Checklists||Field trip leaving Saturday at 4 am||Rare Bird Alerts|
|Scientific sites||abstracts||biology||Symposia at XYZ University||submission deadlines|
|Conservation sites||saving habitat||write your congressman||Conference in Washington, D.C||"before it is too late"|
We would like to make it easy for Birders from all over the world to find YOUR organization!
