Rovio teams up with BirdLife to fight extinction, invasive aliens... and green pigs!

Angry Birds are taking up the fight to save the world’s most threatened birds from extinction. Rovio is working with BirdLife International, the world leader in bird conservation, to give these otherwise condemned bird species a last throw of the dice.

Most of our fans worldwide know only too well that Angry Birds are furious with the green pigs that have stolen their eggs. But sadly, far fewer people are aware that the world’s angriest birds are undoubtedly the 190 Critically Endangered wild bird species that sit on the edge of extinction because of man's impact on our planet.

We were really surprised to discover the similarity between the Angry Birds fight for survival and what is going on in the real world. Many species of wild birds facing extinction are threatened by invasive alien animals like feral pigs and escaped marmosets – the parallels are extraordinary.

Angry Birds will help raise awareness of the extinction crisis globally, and we invite our fans to join us helping BirdLife prevent threatened species from disappearing forever.

Head to BirdLife.org to learn more about preventing extinctions of critically endangered birds. Look closely, and you will discover a clue where to find a secret level in Angry Birds Seasons Easter update!
