BirdLasser makes it easy to share your observations with the relevant cause authorities – giving them a better understanding of our birds, their habitat changes and the effect on their wellbeing. On the flip side, if you believe our users’ observation data can help your cause, contact us and let’s see if we can get your cause to benefit as well.
