    The aims of EBCC are to:

    • Bring together ornithologists who are interested in the study of distribution, numbers and demography of European birds
    • Encourage monitoring of bird populations and their distributions aimed at better conservation and management of bird populations.
    • Promote monitoring that is rigorously planned with clear objectives.
    • To monitor distribution, numbers and demography so that changes may be detected, and if possible, understood and the relevant agencies provided with sound information to base conservation and management actions
    • Promote the development of indicators of the changing ability of European landscapes to support wildlife.
    • Encourage communication and collaboration between organisations, institutions and individuals interested in monitoring bird populations and their distribution
    • Promote exchange of news, ideas and expertise through its journal (Bird Census News) and through its programme of conferences and workshops.
    • Host major international conferences on a 3 to 4-year cycle across Europe with published proceedings.
    • Work closely with international ornithological and conservation organisations, and encourage links between ornithologists, land managers and policy makers.
    • Encourage and create specialist working groups to tackle relevant topics
    • Run major international projects such as the European atlases and monitoring schemes
