Get ready for this year's Twitchathon!
The National Twitchathon is BirdLife Australia's spring race for bird conservation. It's a friendly competition in which teams of birders race to see or hear as many bird species as possible in a set time, while raising funds for BirdLife Australia and our crucial conservation and research projects.
JOIN THE RACE IN 2019
The first step is easy: think of a great team name, register your team, then plan your route across multiple habitats in order to score more birds.
Next, seek out local sponsors to support your team, then fundraise amongst family, friends, and co-workers on how many species you will see. We recommend 20c to $1 per bird as a good starting point, or just ask for a set donation in support of your efforts. Donations here.
Below are the three race categories, including rules, how we score the Twitchathon and a check list on getting started. If you’re a junior team, register on the same forms.
