CREATE habitat for birds and champion change.

Share your spaces with birds and create a place they’ll love. This year you’re all encouraged to help advocate for the protection of our native urban birds. Whether it’s indirectly through surveys  - helping to guide our conservation plans and best practice guidelines for urban birds – or directly through your actions at home by creating and protecting habitat, or getting others involved in Birds in Backyards. Be a voice in your community!
