Small actions have grand results. We have enhanced the careers of thousands of biologists, and guides, inspired youth to consider careers in conservation, assisted in finding species in newly documented locations, and helped educators introduce people to bird birds and their conservation.


Project Director: Joni Ellis

Optics for the Projects was founded by Joni Ellis, a passionate conservationist. The program is offered in partnership with World Migratory Bird Day.

Our partners at Vortex Optics help us to provide the best pair of binoculars for the job, from top-of-the-line optics for researchers to easy-to-hold for our youngest birders.

Are you in need of binoculars? Please submit your application for support HERE. The basic requirements are need, a method of delivery to your location, and participation in World Migratory Bird Day.
