Founded in 1960, Long Point Bird Observatory (LPBO) was the first organization of its type in North America. As a non-profit, research and monitoring station, LPBO is committed to involving Canadians in research directed at the conservation of wild birds and their habitats. Our programs at Long Point are focused on local breeding and migratory birds. We have a special interest in promoting the participation of amateurs and volunteers in our research. We believe that many people working together can accomplish a great deal more than could a few professionals working alone.
