The activities of Małopolskie Ornithological Society

The society was established in December 1982, initially as the Club of Ornithologists of Małopolska, and since 1992, it has been operating under its current name as a formally registered association. The area where MTO conducts its research encompasses the Małopolska Upland, Subcarpathia, and the Carpathian region, which together make up 1/5 of the country's territory – approximately 60,000 square kilometers.2. We gather individuals interested in birds from the regions of Małopolska, Subcarpathia, Świętokrzyskie, and the eastern part of the Silesian Voivodeship.

The main objective of the society's activities is to foster naturalist interests within the community, with a particular focus on birds. This includes studying their distribution, biology, and current population trends. The society is involved in bird and habitat conservation efforts and is also engaged in comprehensive environmental education.

The society is actively involved in the conservation of valuable natural habitats, primarily within the city of Krakow and its surrounding areas. We bring together amateur ornithologists, bird professionals, as well as enthusiasts and bird lovers. Our primary goal is to observe birds, gather information about their distribution and population, and actively participate in their conservation. We also strive to ensure that knowledge about birds reaches the broader society through the press, radio, and television.

We encourage everyone to engage in nature observation as a way to spend their leisure time. Even if you are not well-versed in birdwatching but would like to actively participate in our society's work or support us financially, please get in touch with us, and you will surely find something suitable for you and learn a lot. Age is not a determining factor - enthusiasm and perseverance are what matters. An opportunity to meet society members is our annual congress, held once a year in November. During these congresses, we present interesting lectures addressing current ornithological issues.

We warmly encourage you to join our society!
