Bird Study and Protection Society of Serbia
Our primary task is bird protection. Each species has its ecologically irreplaceable place in its habitat in nature. Human activities (especially in Vojvodina such as: agricultural development, forestry, infrastructure and water management) resulted in huge habitat loss for wildlife, thus the possibility for their existence is greatly reduced. Our members have the skills, knowledge, ability and a will to, with directed field work, help to improve the status of every bird species and enlarge possibilties of its survival.
Since its founding, the Bird Study and Protection Society of Serbia has dedicated its work to:
• study and protection of birds and protection of their habitats in Serbia
• publishing data on the biology of birds publication (especially data on ecology, distribution and numbers)
• developing a network of active observers of birds and nature lovers
• public education on bird protection
• collaboration with various stakeholders in areas where birds live (no matter is it a protected area or not)
• international cooperation with the aim of developing joint activities for bird protection
• promotion of the bird protection
