BirdWatch Ireland

BirdWatch Ireland is focussed on the conservation of birds and biodiversity in Ireland. We aim to  target our resources effectively so that we can promote nature conservation among policy-makers and the wider public. Our principal objectives include:


Many of our conservation projects are carried out in collaboration with other institutes and organisations, including Government departments and semi-state bodies, other research bodies, non-governmental organisations and other bird organisations.

BirdWatch Ireland is involved in many research and monitoring projects. These include ongoing and long-term monitoring projects that aim to track how populations of Ireland’s birds are faring over time
