The Tygerberg Bird was originally started in 1986 as a splinter club to the Cape Bird Club (CBC) and specifically aimed at residents of the Northern Suburbs. For the first 21 years the club was run as an independent hobby club with an affiliate membership of Birdlife South Africa. In November 2007 the club became a full member of Birdlife South Africa, adding its voice and input to the conservation of Birdlife and the environmental matters headed up by Birdlife International, thereby growing the international organisation's membership numbers and adding a bigger voice to fund raising efforts for the numerous conservation projects run, not only in South Africa, but worldwide.

Monthly meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of every month (see program). The meetings are held at the TYGERBERG NATURE RESERVE, Totius Street, Welgemoed – starting at 19h30.

Our Mission

To enhance our knowledge of all birds, their behaviour and their habitats, and to introduce the public to the conservation and science of our avian heritage through enjoyable participation by club members.
