Donate 4 Birds is a movement to conserve wild birds and the environment using Twitter (logomark is a wild bird motif), a bird whose numbers have increased more than any other in the 21st century. Activities began in July 2016 when Twitter's services marked their 10th anniversary. To date we have enjoyed the support of over 100,000 Twitter subscribers. This IoT book links with Donate 4 Birds and records birds whose extinction would impact our daily lives. Each page, which features just an illustration of a wild bird, embeds near-field communication (NFC) that connects with a hand-held mobile device. In addition to letting you donate to wild bird conservation activities, articles are updated to provide the most current information on wild birds.

As well as being available for purchase at Amazon.com, these books can also be read at Cambridge and Harvard universities and other academic institutions around the world to which they have been donated. In addition, we plan to donate free of charge through a specially set up site to educational institutions on request.

To eliminate the considerable radio interference of the NFC tags embedded in each page, we used a technology normally used in Japan’s factories and succeeded in making the book IoT accessible.

*Twitter account donations can also be rescinded at any time.
If you cancel your account donation, your account will be restored to how it was immediately prior to being donated.

Project Outline:

One species in seven of wild birds, said to be a barometer of the environment, is threatened with extinction due to the impact of human activities. Almost all of the large wild bird species are on the brink of extinction. If they disappear, ecosystems will collapse, and our lives, too, will be greatly impacted. The Donate 4 Birds movement conserves wild birds and the environment using a bird that has increased the most in the 21st century — Twitter. Donate 4 Birds has set up two donation approaches for supporting initiatives to protect the vital ecosystems of wild birds and build a sustainable society. The first donation method is the usual one of donating money. The second is a world-first initiative whereby you donate Twitter, a bird you have created yourself.*2 By donating your own account you can get the word out to your followers about wild birds and the harsh reality they face and call for donations. From 2018, we are also adding a book, a tool that is more memorable than digital tools, and carrying out a wider range of activities.
