We give birds a voice—by nurturing 100,000+ passionate supporters and by enthralling millions more with expert information, news, insights, and live streaming cams. Our goal: to share the love and understanding of birds and the natural world just as widely as we can.
We serve a large, rapidly growing audience that encompasses nature lovers, bird enthusiasts, citizen scientists, conservationists, policy makers, corporate partners, K–12 teachers, academics, and lifelong learners. More than 95% of our audience are not Cornellians. Rather, they’re individuals from around the globe whose love of birds and nature sparks them to delve into our educational resources, participate in citizen science, and financially support the Lab’s mission.
- Development and Philanthropy
We partner with the Cornell Lab’s financial supporters, fostering partnerships to build a foundation of support for the Lab’s mission.
