Description: The African Bird Club is a UK registered charity which is managed on a voluntary basis by a Council of trustees. The Club was formed in 1994 following a proposal by a number of people with a common interest in African ornithology.

The Club covers the ornithology of the following geographic region:
  • Continental Africa
  • Indian Ocean islands west of 80° East, e.g. Madagascar, Mascarene islands and Socotra
  • Atlantic Ocean on or east of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, e.g. Tristan da Cunha group, Azores and Canaries.
The aims of the Club are to:
  • provide a worldwide focus for African ornithology
  • raise money to support conservation projects in Africa through the Conservation Fund
  • encourage an interest in the conservation of the birds of the region
  • liaise with and promote the work of existing regional societies
  • publish a twice-yearly colour bulletin
  • encourage observers to visit lesser known areas of the region, and search for and study globally threatened and near-threatened species.
