Bird Conservation Nepal

Bird Conservation Nepal

Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN) is the largest and oldest civil society organization dedicated to the interests of ornithologists, birdwatchers and conservationists in Nepal. It seeks to: promote an interest in birds among the general public; encourage research on bird biology and ecology; identify the major threats to birds and act to conserve birds and their habitats. It also provides the most authentic information on birds and their habitats across Nepal.

BCN is a membership organization at present supported by a Founder President, 15 patrons, 93 life members and several ordinary members. The major strength of the organization is the varied membership, which includes students, teachers, professionals, bird enthusiasts, conservationists, and the general public.

Important Bird Areas in Nepal

Important Bird Areas in Nepal

BCN with its partner organisations has published the book on Important Bird Areas in Nepal. This book provides an overview of diversity of bird life in different agro-ecological and climatic zones of Nepal. Current status, threat and consequences are identified and conservation needs are recommended. The book also highlights 27 critical biological sites for bird and biodiversity conservation in Nepal. Thirteen out of 27 critical sites are within the protected area system, meaning they are relatively safer, and the rest are spread in and around wetlands, woodlots, river valleys and watersheds. In addition, five potentially important areas have also been identified which provide conservationists additional opportunities for timely action to protect Nepal's avifaunal diversity.

This IBA inventory fills the gap on national biodiversity inventory and helps government fulfill its obligations towards the CBD. It is hoped that the book will provide guidance to decision makers and planners to geographically focus financial and human resources, and avoid negative impact in land-use and development planning.
