Birdfinders is a specialist travel company offering bird watching holidays, created by birders, for birders. Vaughan Ashby established the organisation in 1993, and to date has led hundreds of bird watching tours to nearly 100 countries. The ethos of Birdfinders is to provide good value worldwide tours focused on seeing the endemic wildlife of a country or region. Using top UK and local guides, all tours are meticulously planned to ensure that participants see as many species as possible.

Since 2008, Birdfinders has actively promoted WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme within its marketing materials, encouraging its staff and customers to offset the flights associated with their bird watching tours. Contributions from Birdfinders and their customers are helping to protect the rainforests of the Nangaritza valley in Southern Ecuador.
