We conduct interdisciplinary research around the world to understand the threats and actions needed to protect priority systems and species, and the ways to work with people to achieve conservation.
Science to Action
Bridging the gap between science and action, we bring information to decision-makers, practitioners, and partners to achieve landscape-scale conservation for birds and ecosystems.
Partnerships and Capacity-Building
With partners across the hemisphere, we share expertise and build capacity to apply science, monitor bird populations, and implement solutions that protect biodiversity and sustainable livelihoods.
Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative
We provide resources, tools, and funding opportunities to help land trusts amplify the protection and stewardship of birds and habitats across the 47 million acres protected by land trusts nationwide.
Bird and Biodiversity Monitoring
Working with partners across the Western hemisphere, we develop integrated bird monitoring programs to advance quantifiable, targeted conservation outcomes.
Coastal Solutions Program
Shorebird declines represent the number one avian conservation crisis in the world today, and to stem the tide, it is imperative to protect and restore these interconnected coastal habitats. The Coastal Solutions Fellows Program addresses the shorebird crisis.
