Peer-reviewed science is nonpartisan. While science is non-advocacy in nature, scientific results ensure fact-driven debate and informed decision making. In this time when our colleagues are being silenced, science is being dismissed, and funding is being cut, Klamath Bird Observatory remains steadfast in standing up for science. And today, right now, science needs you. Your support is more important than ever.

End of Year Campaign

During this end-of-year giving season, we ask that you make a generous donation to Klamath Bird Observatory in support of our work to advance bird and habitat conservation.  Birds are central to the experience of life. They delight, inspire, comfort, and amuse us, and their movements and behaviors reinforce the seasons. Sadly, many birds in the United States are in trouble. Klamath Bird Observatory’s science-based conservation model shows the way forward, but we need your support to succeed.
