The EURING Brochure - Bird Ringing for Science and Conservation


EURING is the co-ordinating organisation for European bird-ringing schemes.
It aims to promote and encourage:

  • Scientific and administrative co-operation between national ringing schemes
  • Development and maintenance of high standards in bird ringing
  • Scientific studies of birds, in particular those based on marked individuals
  • The use of data from bird ringing for the management and conservation of birds

These objectives are achieved mainly through co-operative projects, the organisation of meetings and the collection of data in the EURING Data Bank.
