Our partners work in a variety of arenas to reduce bird mortality. From increasing protection on public lands to reducing direct mortality from collisions with windows, there are numerous ways that each individual, agency and organization can contribute to improving conditions for landbirds. Partners in Flight was especially influential in encouraging the highly successful waterfowl-based Joint Ventures to broaden their scope to protect all birds, including landbirds, from northern Mexico to southern Canada. However, migratory birds still face unprecedented challenges as they annually cross political boundaries and attempt to breed in increasingly restricted areas and under more challenging conditions.
- BirdLife International and the National Audubon Society’s work to identify and protect globally Important Bird Areas in the U.S. and Canada
- American Bird Conservancy’s research and commitment to reducing direct mortality to birds from collisions, cats, pesticides, and energy development.
- The scientific research that academics and partner organizations conduct to better understand the threats and limiting factors affecting the sustainability of our avian populations.
- Cost-effectiveness of ‘Keeping Common Birds Common’ – without action to prevent further losses of abundance, more species will be listed, and their recovery will come at a greater cost to society
