About Bird Studies Canada
The original charity plan of “Hawks for Hawks” led us to search for a charity specifically helping Hawks, but finding something that specific seemed unlikely. Being the proud Canadians we are, we thought, why not extend our strange charitable exercise to all birds, because they could surely use our help! That is when we stumbled upon Bird Studies Canada and their mission, outlined below:
”The mission of Bird Studies Canada is to advance the understanding, appreciation, and conservation of wild birds and their habitats, in Canada and elsewhere, through studies that engage the skills, enthusiasm, and support of its members, volunteers, and the interested public.
Bird Studies Canada is a not-for-profit organization built on the enthusiastic contributions of thousands of volunteer Citizen Scientists. Data from Bird Studies Canada’s volunteer surveys and targeted research projects are used to identify significant population changes and help direct conservation planning.”
