Birds and People

Birds are the most popular group of animals; they enthral people all over the globe. We encounter them on a daily basis, as they attract us with their song, look and flying skill; which we have been long jealous of. As a symbol in art and religion, they play an important role in most human cultures.

Becoming more aware of them, we start to wonder, whether we know them at all. We are intrigued by their way of life, their feeding habits and preferred nesting sites. We are often unsure of how to observe them, without disturbing them and how to help them in order not to damage them even further.

In the organisation we would like to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with children as well as adults, which is why we implement numerous educational activities, trips and other events. Learning about birds can be the first step towards realising the meaning of environment protection and nature conservation, thus establishing better living conditions for birds as well as people.
