BirdWatch Ireland is the largest independent conservation organisation in Ireland. Established in 1968, it currently has over 14,000 members and supporters and a local network of over 20 branches nationwide.
The primary objective of BirdWatch Ireland is the protection of wild birds and their habitats in Ireland through the efforts of our staff, members and volunteers alike. In order to fulfil this objective, it carries out extensive research and survey work, operates applied conservation projects and manages a network of reserves nationwide; it prepares and advocates policies; it recruits, retains and services a growing membership base; it promotes the importance of this work through field education, dedicated media (such as Wings magazine, the BirdWatch Ireland website, its annual journal Irish Birds and other publications) and to the national media. By joining our organisation you will be helping us protect our birds and Ireland's biodiversity.
