PIF Symposium Tri-National Bird Conservation - Abstracts
Over the past few years, the Partners in Flight Science Committee has worked with partners in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico to complete a vulnerability assessment of the 99 species of landbirds that regularly breed in the three countries (9% of the world’s avifauna). The goal was to produce a thorough and standardized assessment that can be used to prioritize conservation actions in North America. Results have been published in Saving Our Shared Bird: The Partners in Flight Tri-National Vision for Landbird Conservation. The underlying theme of the document is to emphasize shared species, shared problems, and shared opportunities at the continental scale. Because this is the state-of-the-art analysis for bird conservation in North America, we believe professional ornithologists in all three societies will be interested in seeing the methods, results, and implications of this project.
