Birds Connect

Connecting communities and biodiversity

Birds Connect is a new project with grant funding from the Community Foundation of Ireland. The project will focus on connecting people and biodiversity through citizen science, outreach and training. We particularly look forward to exploring innovative ways to improve access and participation in bird projects for people with disabilities, new communities and minority groups. The project will run through 2021, and we look forward to keeping you posted with progress through the BirdWatch Ireland website and social media channels.

Citizen Science

Take action and join Spring Alive! An international project to track the movement of migratory birds. By recording your first siting of Swallows, Cuckoos and Swifts, you will be joining a global bird watching community from Europe, Central Asia and Africa to create a real-time map of the incredible journeys these birds take every year.
