ABOUT US

Ethno-ornithology World Archive (EWA)
EWA promotes the engagement of all people in bird conservation by sharing their knowledge and understanding of birds, and helping to safeguard cultural identities. EWA is founded on the recognition that humans everywhere are inspired culturally, practically and spiritually by birds. We collect culturally relevant knowledge of birds, including local and traditional ecological knowledge, and share this globally via the internet and other media. We work with indigenous people, local communities, conservationists and academics, and their institutions, to promote bird conservation through the recognition, affirmation and celebration of traditional and contemporary knowledge, and the environmental stewardship ethic inherent within diverse cultural traditions.
