BirdsConTour Conservation

Since its inception, BirdsConTour takes action in the conservation of birds and their habitats through funding foreign projects and through addressing to our own conservation projects.


In order to achieve a wide range of conservation impact, we manage and support a diversity of projects across the globe, most notably in areas where we offer tours.


When it comes to funding and supporting foreign projects, we select agencies and NGOs that are responsible and ethical in order to ensure the necessary effectiveness.
