National Audubon Society and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service just announced a major new conservation resource for the conservation of shorebirds and their habitats along the Pacific Americas Flyway. The need from a population standpoint is compelling. Across the globe, 45% of Arctic-nesting shorebirds are decreasing and within the flyway, 11% of shorebird populations demonstrate long-term declines; none are known to be increasing.Learn More
The conservation theme for the 2017 International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) is “Stopover Sites – Helping Birds Along the Way”.
We are especially excited about this year’s events and resources as the conservation of stopover sites is a big part of what drives our work and that of our partners.Learn More
