About this Project

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2015 - 2016

The goal of the Arctic Migratory Birds Initiative is to improve the conservation status of migratory birds that breed in the Arctic. The majority of North American Arctic-breeding species migrate through, or winter in, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Many of these species are endangered. By partnering with the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network, a proven, community-based conservation effort, this project aims to improve conservation outcomes for at-risk shorebirds by informing, engaging and connecting communities in the three countries that share responsibility for their well-being.
