The German Ornithologists‘ Society (Deutsche Ornithologen-Gesellschaft - DO-G) is dedicated to the promotion of all forms of ornithology. Founded in 1850, and now one of the oldest scientific organisations worldwide, we represent continuity and permanence.
In our internet pages we offer our readers up to the minute information on a variety of ornithological themes.

We heartily invite you to browse through the content of our website and inform yourselves about planned events and information on all aspects of the DO-G’s work. We trust that you will enjoy your visit to our website.
