Bird Conservation Marketing - Promoting Conservation Through Birding

One Million Birder Project

The One Million Birders Project is a lofty goal to get a list of names of 1,000,000 birders. This list is not to create a mailing list (your email is not asked for nor tracked in any way). Our goal is to quantify the number of birders there are in the U.S. worldwide. It is the hopes that together, one million birders can create a big difference in conservation and habitat restoration efforts.

Check out the list of members – updated weekly.

Note: If you are a young birder (under 18 years old) please sign up via our special
One Million Birder Young Birder Form. [This form removes the requirement of a city and has a few bonus questions.]

If you believe this statement sign up:

I am a birder who believes birds are in trouble and that conservation of their habitat is the key to preserving the amazing diversity of birds on Earth.

    Just want to say I am glad to have found this site. I am a long time AVID Birder since ever I can remember (and I can remember back to when I was 18 months old!~) and have been taking pictures, watching and enjoying all manner of bird species all my life.

    I think of birds as a form of natural enjoyment that allows me to see the wonder of nature and express my amazement at the diversity of one class of animals.

    They are also great markers of environmental trouble. If suddenly there are less birds around, you know something’s gone wrong in the environment. With their diets and area coverage, birds could be the first marker of serious trouble in the environment and we should not only understand that, but take steps to preserve them for their beauty as well as their potential utility to spot disaster before it’s too late to do something.

    I am a young Costa Rican birder, and just wanted to say that I love this new initiative! It would be great if we got to one million names!

    P.S.: Por ahí anda un tico! Pura Vida!
