Our Values

Bird Conservation

We are in this together and sustainable travel is at the forefront of our minds so that we may continue to protect and celebrate biodiversity. Croatia Birding is supporting the conservation of the birds that bring us many delightful hours of sheer bird-watching pleasure. A minimum of 50€ from each Croatia Birding tour sign-up goes towards conservation, supporting NGOs and local conservation efforts.


We are committed to operating in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner. This means minimizing our ecological footprint, reducing any negative impact on the environment, and advocating for eco-friendly practices within the birdwatching and tourism industry.

Ethical Tourism

We place a high value on ethical tourism practices. Our commitment to bird conservation and sustainability extends to our dedication to responsible and ethical tourism. We prioritize the well-being of the environment, local cultures, and the welfare of the communities we interact with. We aim to provide authentic and respectful experiences that leave a positive footprint on the regions we visit.
