Introduction of the Organization

BirdLife International is an international conservation organization committed to preserving birds, habitats and ecosystem. Founded in 1922 by IUCN, it was known as ICBP (International Council for Bird Preservation) which later changed its name into BirdLife International in 1933. Ornithology Dr. T. Gilbert Pearson and Jean Theodore Delacour were two of the central figures that gave life to the organization. Former British foreign secretary Edward Grey took charge of drafting of the first guideline that governs the organization.
