The Alderney Bird Observatory was established in March 2016 and is the only active Bird Observatory in the Channel Islands.  We need your  support in order ensure the observatory grows to fulfill the incredible potential it has already demonstrated –

Founder Membership

We need to raise £37,500 to equip and run the ABO for the first two years. John Horton, the warden, is undertaking the role voluntarily for these first two years until the ABO pays its own way.

Our Founder Membership scheme reflects the fact that many of our supporters will want to be part of this exciting phase of the ABO’s inception and secure its long-term future. Founder members’ names will displayed in the ABO and will, of course, be welcome to drop into the ABO and see how we are doing!
