This week’s air profile is for Birdlife Australia!

Founded in 1901, this organization’s goal is to half the loss of Australasian natural birds and maintain the wildlife found on the continent through spreading knowledge and campaigning for various conservation programs. Though their efforts, a ban was placed on the collection of shearwater eggs, as well as one on live trap-shooting, a barbaric practice where  galahs and other native birds were released en masse and then shot down in their droves. With almost 10,000 members, they hope to continue spreading their message of conservation and ecological responsibility.
