Cuckoos, woodstars, plumeleteers, skimmers, weavers, bee-eaters, grenadiers, laughingthrushes and ground rollers… The wild birds of the world will never cease to astound and amaze. Their natural habitat, however, is disappearing rapidly and most populations are under threat or, at least, in decline. Anyone can walk out their front door and the greener and wetter your surroundings become, the more birds you will see. Many people have an extra pair of old binoculars in a box somewhere. We need to renew efforts to coordinate the collection of as many binoculars as possible for distribution to interested children around the world. This is the only way to open the amazing world of wild birds and inspire lives dedicated to conserving the truly wild places that remain.

Prepare to be blown away every week… The Wild Bird Trust was founded in South Africa in August 2009 with the primary objective of keeping birds safe in the wild. The trust aims to encourage the use of flagship endangered bird species as “ecosystem ambassadors” in their indigenous habitat. The trust focusses on linking ordinary people with conservation action in the field through innovative marketing campaigns and brand development. Saving Africa’s birds is going to take a determined effort from all of us.
