Our Work on Migratory Bird Conservation

According to experts, wild bird populations in the continental United States and Canada have declined by almost 30% since 1970. As a result of human disturbances and habitat degradation, migratory birds have been identified as a priority group of species in need of conservation. We work with communities along bird migration routes to conserve habitats, raise awareness and develop ecotourism linked to bird migration cycles.
