LIPU, the Lega italiana protezione uccelli (En. “Italian League for Bird Protection”) is an Italian charitable organisation, founded in 1965 and devoted to the protection of the country’s wildlife with a particular focus on birds. It has a membership of 42,000 and is the Italian partner of Birdlife International.

Its activities fall broadly within four main areas

  • Species protection, including action against illegal shooting and trapping of birds
  • The conservation and development of habitats important for species conservation
  • Environmental education and the raising of public awareness over wildlife and conservation issues
  • Lobbying for changes in Italian and EU law—or for the more rigorous application of existing law—related to wildlife protection.
