The Swiss Ornithological Institute is a non-profit foundation supported by the public. It is the largest private field research institute in Switzerland. We regularly work together with different universities in Switzerland and abroad. The Swiss Ornithological Institute serves as counselling office for the public, media and authorities, works out scientific facts in ornithology and provides arguments for the conservation of birds. Together with our partners, we make sure that nature benefits from the existing knowledge and law. Further information can be found at http://www.vogelwarte.ch/.
