2016 Plan: What is New Since 2004?


This 2016 Plan Revision presents four new and updated tools for bird conservation:

  • Extinction Risk models that convey quantitative measures of urgency;
  • Responsibility assignments for continental Watch List species scaled to Joint Ventures and Bird Conservation Regions (BCR);
  • Full life-cycle analysis of year-round eBird data to identify areas of greatest importance to migrants in the non-breeding season; and
  • Species assessment scores updated with improved access to the associated PIF database.
