The BTO - Looking out for birds with Business

Andy Clements, BTO Director


The BTO has a strong reputation for independent, pragmatic conservation science. We provide decision makers with the information they need to inform and focus conservation policy and action. Government departments, businesses, conservation NGOs and land managers all benefit from our impartial advice. Business benefits from BTO consultancy, partnership in scientific research, advice and a valued relationship through Corporate Membership.

Many companies are already making an important contribution to Britain’s biodiversity, supporting the BTO through our Corporate Membership Scheme. The BTO is able to broadcast business’ commitment and involvement to more than 50,000 known individual supporters and to a broad range of professional partners.

Corporate Membership of the BTO aims to encourage dialogue with our business supporters. It is about sharing ideas and talking with business to discover how best BTO work can benefit our partner companies, including staff training, customer engagement and access to the BTO’s professional and volunteer experts.

Andy Clements—BTO Director

The relationships the BTO has established with its Corporate Members allow projects to be planned and actioned with confidence and security— this foundation is invaluable.
