Worldwide Science and Conservation Project

eBird is among the world’s largest biodiversity-related science projects, with more than 100 million bird sightings contributed annually by eBirders around the world. A collaborative enterprise with hundreds of partner organizations, thousands of regional experts, and hundreds of thousands of users, eBird is managed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology at Cornell University. The project began with a simple idea—that every birdwatcher has unique knowledge and experience. Team eBird’s staff gathers this information in the form of checklists of birds, archives it, and freely shares it to power new data-driven approaches to science, conservation, and education. At the same time, the staff develops tools that make birding more rewarding—from managing lists, photos, and audio recordings, to seeing real-time maps of species distribution, to receiving alerts that let users know when species have been seen. Available in 27 languages, the eBird app for iOS and Android mobile devices allows offline data collection anywhere in the world, and the website provides many ways to explore and summarize data and other observations from the global eBird community.
