ZEISS engages sponsorship with Birdability

New organization promotes inclusion and access for those with disabilities or health concerns.​

Through education, outreach and advocacy, Birdability works to ensure the birding community and the outdoors are welcoming, inclusive, safe and accessible for everybody. They focus on people with mobility challenges, blindness or low vision, chronic illness, intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental illness, and those who are neurodivergent, deaf or hard of hearing or who have other health concerns. In addition to current birders, Birdability strives to introduce birding to people with disabilities and other health concerns who are not yet birders, so they too can experience the joys of birding.

Besides financial support, ZEISS also provides different optics. Read more about the organization and our partnership in the ZEISS Nature Blog.
