The Ornithological Council, a consortium of scientific ornithological societies in the Western Hemisphere, seeks to:
- Ensure that the best ornithological science is incorporated into legislative, regulatory, and management decisions that affect birds;
- Enhance the ability of ornithologists to pursue professional activities; and
- Promote the influence of ornithology in public affairs
We provide resources and support for ornithologists, including:
We also publish timely articles about the intersection of conservation policy and ornithology at the Ornithology Exchange, in our ‘News from the OC‘ forum.
Our financial support comes from our member societies and from individual ornithologists who value our work. If the resources here are valuable to you, please consider supporting our work through the ‘Donate’ button at the bottom of this page. Thank you for your support!
