Welcome to Papua Bird Club
PAPUA BIRD CLUB IS DEDICATED TO THE PROMOTION OF CONSERVATION, THE PROTECTION OF BIRDS, AND THE SUPPORT OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES IN PAPUA.
Papua Bird Club was founded by Kris Tindige in 1995 as a non-profit organization committed to helping local Papuan communities and conserving the forests and bird life of Papua through ecotourism. Since then, it has metamorphosed into two wings: Magnificus Expeditions, a registered company which offers birding-based eco-tours throughout West Papua, and Papua Konservasi dan Komunitas, an organization which runs community development and capacity-building programs focused on conservation and ecotourism. Papua Konservasi dan Komunitas is not yet a registered non-profit organization, but will be soon.
These two sister organizations work hand in hand to promote both conservation of Papua's forests and bird life and help Papuan communities improve their lives. Papua Konservasi dan Komunitas programs help the local people develop the skills and understanding to work successfully and independently in the ecotourism market, and Magnificus Expeditions brings them the opportunity to use and directly benefit from those skills through the birding tours it brings to their communities.
