Exhaustion. Starvation. Persecution. Our birds know the risks. But many of these deaths can be prevented.

Up and down the Americas, vital habitats are being destroyed senselessly, leaving these tiny birds with nowhere to rest and refuel.

Only BirdLife can give these birds the coast-to-coast protection these birds need. Donate now to help us save them.

 

What is a ‘Flyway’?

Stretching from the frozen tundra of remote Canada to the very southern tip of Argentina, the Atlantic Americas Flyway is a major migration route spanning 46 countries and used by nearly 400 species of birds. Sadly, two of these may already have gone extinct – and more will follow unless we act now.

Think of flyways as a kind of highway for birds. These are major routes that migratory birds of various species use, year in, year out because they have learned they can rely on them for places to rest and feed.

BirdLife has identified eight major Flyways, including the Atlantic Americas Flyway, which hugs the east coast of America. Select a project to discover how BirdLife is protecting its passengers from take-off to landing.
