Binoculars4charity is an association based in Zurich, Switzerland. It was founded in April 2017 by two wonderful friends: Juanita and Mathias.

In much of the world, binoculars and other ornithological equipment are luxury goods. At the same time, many people in Switzerland own fully functional optical devices that they rarely use. At Binoculars4charity, we aim to give such devices a meaningful second life. We pass them on to projects and institutions worldwide that are committed to nature conservation and ornithological training, but do not have the means to obtain binoculars, spotting scopes, guidebooks, etc.

The story and the statutes of Binoculars4charity may be downloaded here (in German only).
