Established in 1982, Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN) is the leading organization in Nepal, focusing on the conservation of birds, their habitats, and sites. It seeks to promote interest in birds among the general public, encourages research on birds, and identifies major threats to birds’ continued survival. As a result, BCN is the foremost scientific authority providing accurate data and information on birds and their habitats throughout Nepal. The organization also provides scientific data and expertise on birds for the Government of Nepal (GoN) through the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) and works closely on birds and biodiversity conservation throughout the country.

BCN is a membership-based organization with an Executive Council, advisors, patrons, life members, general members, friends of BCN, and active supporters. The membership provides strength to society and is drawn from people from all walks of life from students, volunteers, professionals, and conservationists.

BCN is also part of the BirdLife International Partnership, a network of 119 organizations around the world, working on a worldwide agenda to conserve the world’s birds and their habitats.
