Come and visit the BRC

We have different opportunities for you to join the Batumi Raptor Count. The first one is to be a part as full time counter for at least 2 weeks. During this time you will monitor raptors from one of the stations and live in the BRC headquarters with other counters and the coordinators. If you don't like the obligation of counting for two weeks, you can come as a visitor. We provide you  with a guesthouse at a local family, you are free to go wherever you like and we even offer transport service to local bird watching spots.

We warmly invite everybody to join the autumn raptor count. The survey will be held from 17 Aug until 16 Oct.
The application process is open!


One pillar of BRC's conservation work is promoting ecotourism. By generating international interest and by facilitating visits to the region, we increase the appreciation for the migration spectacle among the local community. To obtain this, we have established a company to organise this: Batumi Birding. We have established this framework to work with local families and channel bookings and excursions, coordinate the hospitality and assist the hosts with advice and information on the specifics of a birders public. The company is owned by the Sabuko - Society for Nature Conservation, the organization behind the BRC. 70% of the profits will flow our the conservation work.
By staying in a guesthouse, you support our approach, and contribute directly to the local economy.
