“Strength in Numbers!”
Birds Korea is dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitats in Korea and the wider Yellow Sea Eco-region.
Founded in 2004, we are a legally-registered and award-winning Korean conservation NGO that depends entirely on project funds, donations, volunteers and active members to continue our work. Please join us!
At the time of writing (in 2022) we have 300+ members throughout Korea and a small office in Busan:
Birds Korea, 407 Ho, Daeyeon Hillstate Prugio, Su-Young Ro 345,Nam-gu, Busan 48432
Office Telephone: 051 627 3163
Thanks to the support of our members, supporters and friends we can get heard; we can influence decisions; we can win.
We conduct research; we work to solve issues through planning and design; and we do as much as our capacity allows to raise awareness and to support education programs. We are always open to collaboration with those of good mind – and are grateful for every opportunity to improve conservation opportunities as part of genuinely sustainable development.
In 2020 and 2021, in spite of the pandemic:
- WE continued our work on Baekryeong / Baengnyeong Island, working with Trevor Rose and KFEM to install frog ladders; working with SAVE International and students and professors at University of California Berkeley to develop alternative designs for “Bible Land”; and conducting more bird counts.
- WE researched the cage-bird trade in the ROK under contract from Monitor, an overseas organisation;
- We surveyed forest along the Bijarim Ro in Jeju as part of a formal re-assessment of a road-widening project and with local activists surveyed areas likely to be impacted by the proposed Jeju Second International Airport;
- WE researched forest in the Yeoncheon Imjin River Biosphere Reserve;
- WE surveyed the Hwaseong Wetlands Flyway Network Site as part of a project led by the EAAFP Secretariat and Hwaseong City;
- WE surveyed several sites along the inner border area of Korea with the Hanns Seidel Foundation (Korea office);
- WE joined in research at the proposed airport on Gadeok Do, Busan; and
- WE conducted surveys along the Imjin and Hantan Rivers under contract from Yeoncheon County.
- WE also conducted two training workshops; gave presentations; published data-rich reports; and supported the development of Korean language materials for eBird.
In 2022 and beyond, we hope you will join and support us: thank you!
