BirdNote for All

A hearty thank you to all of our 2018 GiveBIG donors!

Thanks to you, listener-supported BirdNote opens the door — to birds, to nature, and to conservation — for all!

Through the art of joyful storytelling, BirdNote transports listeners out of the grueling demands of the day and into the calming, restorative power of nature. The world needs this nourishment. Listeners are hungry for joy, for reminders of what matters, and for the energy and resolve that comes from inspiration. It’s why so many listeners tell us “I LOVE BirdNote!”

As part of GiveBIG 2018, we celebrated some of the BirdNote stories and projects that are helping to build the broadest, most inclusive audience possible for conservation. We also celebrate your feedback, which has encouraged us to keep making stories about birds and their amazing lives accessible for all — free — 365 days a year, on the air, on BirdNote’s website, and in earbuds across the country. Thank you, and enjoy!  (And if you missed GiveBIG, you can still donate here.)

And here's what a few listeners say about BirdNote:

I think BirdNote keeps getting better and better. I have been listening for years. I like that the stories are intellectually interesting and not just fun. Thank you BirdNote for your good work.

    I have fallen in love with your podcast! I'm a poet, musician, and college writing instructor. I'm new to birding, and I so appreciate how much I'm learning from your site. I also admire the clear, vibrant voice in each story; it's a rare feat to match the beauty of human language with the beauty of more-than-human voices.
  ~ Emily, FL
    Just to say that your segments are always interesting and educational, well-scripted and with great sound bites. What more could I ask for? 
  ~ Brian C, Victoria, BC
