International Logo Exhibition - Uniting bird lovers from all around the world

Thursday, 08 July 2021 14:41

LOGOIn our tower over the marsh we have a great new exhibition which connects bird lovers everywhere. All around the world ornithological societies, conservation groups and other types of organizations are working to protect birds and their habitats. Each group has a logo which reflects not only the species they represent but also aspects of the culture and geography they come from. As you climb the tower you can enjoy the diversity of the designs and images.

Here at the Urdaibai Bird Center our logo is a swallow in flight. This migratory bird was chosen to represent UBC many years ago when the organization was just a fledgling and was known as the Elaia Association. The swallow is a much loved bird in the Basque Country as it nests in the porches of the farmhouses. When it returns after wintering in Africa, it is a sign that spring has arrived. In rural communities this was a symbol of hope.

UBC Logo

It is fascinating to see the UBC logo alongside that of the Belize Bird Conservancy, for example. In this design a raptor´s head is interestingly combined with the stairs of a Mayan temple.


Another spectacular example is the kingfisher which adorns the logo of the Romanian Ornithological Society.


All the incredible diversity of the birds and the places they inhabit is concentrated in the logos on display. The exhibition also opens your eyes to the vast range of countries where bird conservation work and monitoring is being done.

Our exhibition is not something which we consider to be finished. We would like to be able to add more and more logos to it as the worldwide appreciation of birds grows. If you are part of an organization related to the conservation/observation of birds and you have a logo you would like to be part of the exhibition, just send us a large sized JPEG and we will be happy to include it.

We invite everyone you to enjoy our new and ever growing exhibition celebrating the work being done to protect birds worldwide
