Bird Studies Canada is Canada’s leading science-based bird conservation organization. To find out more about our mission click here.

Join the Great Canadian Birdathon and help conserve birds and biodiversity across Canada! More than 7,000 people from across Canada (and around the world) participate in and/or sponsor the Great Canadian Birdathon in May each year. Please join us in raising funds and awareness for bird conservation!


You may donate to a specific participant or team while giving them encouragement at the same time. To give, select "Find a Team or Person", type the name, then click "Search". To see a complete list of all participants, click "Search" without typing in the search field.


Create a Team: Click this button to create a Team Page and your own Individual Page as the Team's Captain. Note that as Team Captain you will have the ability to modify the team page with images and a story, as above. You can also invite others to set up an individual page under the team's umbrella so that all of their donations will be counted towards the team's fundraising total!

Join as an Individual: Click this button to create your own personalized webpage. You will be prompted to create a free donor account with CanadaHelps. When creating your page, note especially the following two fields:

Page Name: Will appear at the top of your fundraising page. It is highly recommended that you include your first and last name along with any other personalization so that your friends and family can find you easily for sponsorship (ie "Firstname Lastname’s page").

Page Owner: This will be your first name and last name.

Then, write a short Personal Fundraising Story. Set your fundraising goal and add a photo as the "Featured Image"; it will appear on your page above your fundraising story. Ask your friends and family to support your Great Canadian Birdathon and then choose any day in May and go birding! Better yet, start off by sponsoring yourself and then ask your friends and family to join in the cause.

Printable forms are also available through these links to help you with your fundraising efforts:
