Twitchathon - raising money for birds
Twitching is great
Twitching is great fun.
"Twitchathon" is a noun with several meanings: It can mean (1) participating in a fun race against time to find as many species as possible, and (2) obtaining donors who will sponsor you and your team (2 or more people) for every species of bird you find in that period. Or it could be (3) just supporting a team by being a donor, but most importantly it is (4) fund raising for real research and/or conservation of our native birds with tax deductible status (for donations over $2).

The Twitchathon is held every October at the end of Bird Week. Why not give it a go? Have a fun day chasing as many species as you can and raise money for conservation projects. There are three races to choose from: the 30-hour 'Big Weekend', the 12-hour 'Big Day' and the 3-hour 'Birdathon'. All you have to do is register a team, start fundraising amongst co-workers, friends and family, and get racing to clock up your species count.

Whichever of these options you prefer, please contact Birdlife Australia for either a Twitchathon registration kit or a sponsorship sheet. Click here for the BirdLife Twitchathon Homepage
