OBC achieves its valuable conservation work, thanks to the support of its members and a number of corporate and business supporters.
OBC Corporate Sponsors
The OBC Corporate Sponsorship Scheme has recently changed to allow companies to choose the level of support for OBC, from £200 – £1000+ per annum.
Download our newsletter (PDF, 210 KB), which explains the revised levels and gives examples of how businesses have helped OBC make a real difference to conservation and awareness raising in the Oriental region over the years.
Most payments are due for renewal and we hope that our past supporters will renew for OBC’s 25th Anniversary Year. Please contact Jo Thomas via mail@orientalbirdclub or phone Jo on +44 (0)1480 370593.
