It’s that time of year again, and our skilled team of bird counters and volunteers are gearing up for this annual fundraising event supporting the amazing work happening here at Whitefish Point Bird Observatory. In late May, on a day chosen by our dedicated team to offer the very best conditions, they will head out to count as many species as possible in one day.
That’s where you come in! Because our work is 100% donor funded, Birdathon provides all of our supporters with an opportunity to make a significant impact on our work by making a pledge for each species spotted during Birdathon. With the count just weeks away, now is the time to pledge your support and help us spread the word about the work being done here at WPBO.
When you donate to Birdathon, you will receive the 2019 Birdathon species list following the event. You can make your per-species pledge or a flat donation of your choice at any time, by clicking on the links below.
WPBO is celebrating 40 years of bird conservation — let’s celebrate this milestone with another successful Birdathon, protecting this birding paradise and its inhabitants, and supporting our research for decades to come.
