  BirdWatch Ireland  
  BirdWatch Ireland is the leading voluntary conservation organisation in Ireland, devoted to the conservation and protection of Ireland's birds and their habitats. They have more than 10,000 members and supporters and have 20 branches nationwide. BWI is funded by annual membership subscriptions, donations, grants and sponsorship.
History BirdWatch Ireland is the trading name of the Irish Wildbird Conservancy (IWC), which was formed in 1968 from the merger of three ornithological bodies - the Irish Society for the Protection of Birds (ISPB), the Irish Ornithologists' Club and the Irish Wildfowl Conservancy. Since then, they have grown to become Ireland's largest, most experienced and active independent nature conservation body. They have a network of member branches throughout the country, actively promoting the importance of birds and their habitats.  Key Aims of BWI BirdWatch Ireland is an independent body with clear aims and objectives devoted to the conservation and protection of Ireland's wild birds and their habitats. Research, surveys and conservation projects aimed at threatened birds and their habitats form the basis of BWIs conservation policies. Surveys are carried out on a voluntary basis by their members or on a professional basis with government agencies and other conservation and non-government organisations (NGOs). Development of policies and lobbying for their implementation also form important aspects for BWI's work. Their aim is to ensure that sites of national and international importance for birds are managed to maximise their nature conservation potential and ensure that Ireland's responsibilities under the various EU directives (EU Habitat Directive, EU Birds Directive, EU Water Framework Directive) are fulfilled. Also to ensure that such directives are transposed in Irish law and successfully implemented and enforced, along with other national legislative acts (e.g. Wildlife Act 2002 Amended) and International Obligations such as the Convention on Biological Diversity, signed in Rio by the Irish Government in 1992.
BirdWatch Ireland owns or manages an increasing number of reserves which protect threatened habitats for birds. Among the best known are the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve, Little Skellig and Bullock Island on the Shannon Callows.
BWI has defined long-term aims and objectives in its Forward Strategy document. This was published in August 2002 and has been distributed to all members and other interested parties.
The key aims of BirdWatch Ireland are:
 Maintain and, where possible, improve the conservation status of all Irish bird species. Prevent the extinction of any Irish bird species in the wild. Conserve, and where appropriate, improve and enlarge sites and habitats important for birds. Help through birds, to conserve biodiversity (other wildlife) and thereby improve the quality of people's lives. Integrate nature conservation with sustainable development. Educate and promote awareness of our birdlife and habitats.

Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
$10,820.00 US.

BirdWatch Ireland has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as BirdWatch Ireland.

AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to BirdWatch Ireland. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
