Welcome to the Gibraltar Ornithological and Natural History Society

The Gibraltar Ornithological & Natural History Society (GONHS), founded in 1976, is a non-governmental, membership-based organisation committed to research into and conservation of nature in Gibraltar and the region of the Strait of Gibraltar.

We work independently and in collaboration with other organisations and scientific or conservation institutions to achieve these aims.

We are committed to environmental and biological education both through our own programme of activities and by supporting others.


Membership is open to all those who share our aims.



GONHS is a Partner of BirdLife International, a member of IUCN (The World Conservation Union), of the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum and the British Trust for Ornithology Partnership.
