“Our hopes for Talking Philanthropy 2021”

“BirdLife International is a totally unique type of international NGO. It has a scientific approach in the collec- tion and analysis of data, which is then used to work with governments, local authorities and companies to make conservation measures and projects more effective. The reputation of BirdLife as being not only relia- ble and effective, but also attentive to the needs of people, makes me proud to be its Honorary President.”
Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado, Honorary President, BirdLife International”
