The Trust, with an interest in birds worldwide, seeks to provide public benefit through encouraging the teaching of taxonomy and of understanding of the content and value of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. These objectives are naturally most relevant to the professional ornithological community. In pursuit of these objectives the Trust is able to accept assignment to it of intellectual property relating to the delivery of high-quality information on these subjects both to the above-mentioned community and to the broader public that is interested in birds and their conservation worldwide.
The Trust does not involve itself directly in conservation as other charities fulfil that role.
