Birds Canada is a non-profit, charitable organization built on the enthusiastic contributions of thousands of caring members and volunteer Citizen Scientists. Data (observations) collected by Citizen Scientists, alongside targeted research projects, are used to identify significant bird population changes and help direct conservation planning. Nearly 60,000 outstanding Canadians volunteer as Citizen Scientists for one or more of Birds Canada’s programs, keeping an eye on the health of bird populations.

Our national headquarters is located in Port Rowan, Ontario, connected to the historic Long Point Bird Observatory, with regional offices from coast to coast.

We believe the most effective conservation results arise from a multifaceted approach which addresses the needs of habitats, people, and species.
