The Swiss Ornithological Institute is a non-profit foundation dedicated to ornithology and the protection of birds. It monitors native birds, researches their way of life and advocates for threatened species. It looks after injured and orphaned birds, provides information and advice to the public, and runs a visitor centre in Sempach.
The Ornithological Institute employs experts from the fields of biology, environmental science, agriculture, forestry, veterinary medicine, communication, IT, finance, electronics, statistics and customer service.
We handle the donations entrusted to us very carefully. For many years, the Swiss Ornithological Institute has carried the ZEWO seal of approval for non-profit institutions.
