The BirdLife International Partnership strives to conserve birds, their habitats and global biodiversity, working with people towards sustainability in the use of natural resources.
BirdLife International is a global Partnership of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) with a special focus on conservation and birds. Each NGO Partner represents a unique geographic territory.
Every four years the Partnership adopts strategies, programmes and policies and elects a global Council and regional committees. The Council appoints a Chief Executive Officer to head a decentralised international Secretariat that co-ordinates and supports the Partnership to achieve BirdLife International''s aims and objectives.
