Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union

The Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union (RAOU), now part of BirdLife Australia, was Australia's largest non-government, non-profit, bird conservation organisation. It was founded in 1901 to promote the study and conservation of the native bird species of Australia and adjacent regions, making it Australia's oldest national birding association. In 1996, the organisation adopted the trading name of Birds Australia for most public purposes, while retaining its original name for legal purposes and as the publisher of its journal, the ''Emu''. In 2012, the RAOU merged with Bird Observation & Conservation Australia to form BirdLife Australia.

The RAOU was the instigator of the Atlas of Australian Birds project. It also published (in association with Oxford University Press) the encyclopaedic ''Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds''. Its quarterly colour membership magazine was ''Wingspan''. The RAOU is the Australian Partner of BirdLife International, and had the motto "Conservation through Knowledge". Provided by Wikipedia
