Volunteers are particularly invaluable within conservation and they are the life-blood of many BirdLife Partners. For example, the RSPB (BirdLife in the UK) has at least nine volunteers for every paid member of staff, whilst Forest & Bird (BirdLife in New Zealand) calculate that their network of volunteers contribute 864,000 hours each year towards protecting New Zealand’s wildlife. When the BP oil spill devastated the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, more than 13,000 people signed up with the Audubon Society (BirdLife in the US) to help with the clean-up. Volunteers also play an important role in monitoring bird populations and, around the world, hundreds of thousands participate in citizen science projects.
