BirdWatch Ireland

BirdWatch Ireland is the trading name of the Irish Wildbird Conservancy (IWC), which was formed in 1968 from the merger of three ornithological bodies - the Irish Society for the Protection of Birds (ISPB), the Irish Ornithologists' Club and the Irish Wildfowl Conservancy. Since then, we have grown to become Ireland's largest, most experienced and active independent nature conservation body. We have a network of member branches throughout the country, actively promoting the importance of birds and their habitats.

The key aims of BirdWatch Ireland are:

Boardmatch is the only Irish charity that specialises in charity board recruitment. 

We match individuals that are looking to volunteer their time and skills at board level, with charities and not-for-profits that have board and committee vacancies.

We believe the right balance of skilled voluntary trustees provides a not-for-profit with the necessary skills to respond to changes, meet the challenges of the sector and to achieve their strategic objectives.

Boardmatch does this primarily through:
