The Swiss Ornithological Institute was founded in 1924 as a station for ringing birds, and is today a locally and internationally respected institute for ornithology and the protection of birds. The public is familiarized with native bird species at the institute's headquarters in Sempach. A fil documentary about the Ornithological Institute's projects, an exhibition about birds and their voices as well as two PC workstations and an info-column with information and games facilitate multimedia learning. The care of injured and sick birds, a large library with specialized books and comprehensive databanks about the prevalence of birds and their habitats make the Sempach Ornithological Institute a learning center of national importance.
