Annual Report

Birds are disappearing forever…
The natural rate of bird extinction is one bird per century. In the last thirty years alone, 21 bird species have become extinct. At present, 197 are classified as Critically Endangered. On the very edge of extinction. Without immediate action, many will not be here in ten years’ time.
