North American Landbird Conservation Plan (2004)
Part I. The Continental Plan
This Plan provides a continental perspective on North American landbird conservation, presenting geographic, species, and habitat priorities. An international approach is essential because most species breed, migrate, and winter in more than one country, such that Canada, the U.S., and Mexico share many of the same birds at different times of year. Migratory birds are an international resource that requires conservation planning at a continental scale and beyond—a different approach than what may be suitable for more sedentary wildlife. Our audience includes decision-makers, land-managers and scientists at national and international levels, who collectively have the ability to meet PIF’s ambitious goals for landbirds.
