Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory!
The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitats through science and outreach. Birds are excellent indicators of ecosystem health. They are highly visible and cost-effective to track, and are sensitive to environmental change.
SFBBO pays close attention to impacts on birds and their habitats and gathers crucial data specific to local bird populations. We also provide opportunities for people to be directly involved in the nature and science of the San Francisco Bay Area. We hope you will explore our website to learn more about our work and ways to donate, volunteer, join an event and more!
To learn more about our programs and receive monthly updates about ways to engage in our work, please sign up for our free, monthly e-newsletter Wingbeat!
