Want to play your part in conservation?
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.

Birding Big Day 2017

The African continent is going big with this year’s Birding Big Day (BBD), taking place Saturday 25 November 2017. In South Africa, BirdLife South Africa will host their 33rd BBD. Elsewhere on the continent, South Africa’s neighbours close by and far afield have decided to take on the challenge to see which country can log the most species in 24 hours. Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya, Egypt and a few more, will host their own BBD’s.
