Why do we need songbirds?

Discover our Promises

Birds help to shape the world we see around us. They disperse seeds, keeping the balance between plants, herbivores, predator and prey, and recycling nutrients.

Birds are a critical part of the ecosystem

They respond quickly to changes in the environment, whether for good or bad, so they act as our early warning system for when things are going wrong.

Birds don’t need us - but we need them

They are an essential part of our ecosystem, and we need them for our own survival. They also help our souls in an indefinable way, lifting the spirit, bringing comfort and joy, often at times when it is much needed.
