As the holder of a large amount of bird biodiversity data, BirdLife Australia has a responsibility to ensure that the data it collects, especially sensitive data, is managed appropriately. Click here to read more.

Classifying biodiversity (biological taxonomy) is a complex and much-debated topic, but one essential in our conservation efforts. Recognising the important function of accurate and current bird lists, BirdLife Australia has developed the Working List of Australian Birds (WLAB). 

We are always looking to improve Birdata – how to make it easier for you to record, store and explore our birdlife, and how to best collect the information needed to protect our native birds and their habitats. Read on to learn about our latest updates.
