Conserving Landbirds in the Americas
Advancing full life-cycle conservation of landbirds in the Americas via sound science, integrated conservation partnerships, habitat delivery on public and private lands, and targeted citizen outreach.
The loss and degradation of grasslands, aridlands, boreal forests and other habitats outpaces species’ ability to adapt. But where conservation investments are made to improve or conserve habitat, birds do well.
Species in Peril
The window for preventing endangerment is narrow. Of 86 Watch List species, 22 have lost half of their population in the last 40 years. Their populations will likely be halved again in the next 40 years.
2016 Landbird Conservation Plan
This Partners in Flight plan revision is a guide to landbird conservation in the U.S. and Canada over the next 10 years. It presents new assessments and tools as well as recommendations to address continental threats, reverse long-term population declines, and prevent landbirds from becoming at risk.
Conservation Action Makes a Difference
We know that when we use the best science to develop conservation plans, and commit to the implementation of those plans, we can make a difference.
International collaboration is critical to conserving landbird populations.
Let’s work together.
