The study of birds and their conservation has been central to our mission since we were founded as Point Reyes Bird Observatory in 1965.

To honor our history, and to sustain our commitment to bird conservation, we have established the Point Reyes Bird Observatory Fund. This Fund supports our long-term bird ecology studies and internships at the Palomarin Field Station (Point Reyes National Seashore) and the Farallon Islands (Farallon National Wildlife Refuge).

We are deeply grateful to an anonymous donor for launching this fund with a generous gift of $100,000.  Your gift of any size makes a difference!

At Palomarin and the Farallon Islands, we have amassed some of the longest term, continuous data sets on birds in the world, providing invaluable insights into environmental change and conservation solutions. These programs allow us to understand and conserve bird populations while also looking to birds as indicators of ecosystem health.

You can follow our biologists and learn more about the important work being done at these two integral long-term field stations at Point Blue's Farallones Blog and Palomarin Blog.

Gifts designated to the Point Reyes Bird Observatory Fund will be used to directly support, improve, communicate about and enhance these core program areas.

Supporters of $250 or more are recognized as Oystercatcher Circle members and offered special lectures and field experiences with Point Blue scientists at our Palomarin Field Station.

We are deeply grateful to our partners at the National Park Service and the US Fish and Wildlife Service for making these invaluable, long-term studies possible.

Note: If mailing in a donation to this fund, please be sure to indicate that your gift is designated to the "Point Reyes Bird Observatory Fund" including the word "fund" to ensure your donation is restricted to our bird ecology studies conducted at the Palomarin Field Station and Farallon Islands.
