Working groups and Committees

Bird working group

As the name says, the bird working group deals with everything that has to do with birds. These can be all kinds of birds, from impressive raptors to the most beautiful birds of paradise. Each working group member submits his own ideas for excursions, workshops, and lectures during the meetings and then sets about organizing them.

The activities that are organized are different every year, but there is one activity that keeps coming back because of its success. This is the well-known bird first aid, given by honorary member Dr. Yvonne van Zeeland, which we currently offer twice a year.

Besides submitting nice ideas, it is also a fantastic opportunity to network within the bird world. One of the options for networking is through the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV). The AAV is an international professional organization dedicated to promoting the health, welfare and conservation of birds. More information about the AAV can be found on this page . By organizing activities, contacts with specialists, practices and organizations are easily made and this can be of great benefit if you want to apply yourself in avian medicine.
