The charity is an initiative of the Bird Information Centre (Vogelinformatiecentrum) Texel and has the aim of encouraging birdwatching on Texel. Examples of our activities include: the planning and realisation of new bird hides on Texel; promoting awareness, such as the importance of restricted-access areas; and to improve the accessibility of information on birds on Texel.
As a charity we receive income from the excursions run by the Bird Information Centre and donations from special sales and promotions at the Bird Information Centre such as the painting of nest boxes and the sale of second-hand books. In addition, we apply for funding to realise specific aims.
The committee consists of four enthusiastic members who carry out this role on a fully voluntary basis and without financial compensation.
