Mission and strategy of the organisation

American Bird Conservancy is dedicated to conserving wild birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. With an emphasis on achieving results and working in partnership, ABC takes on the greatest problems facing birds today, innovating and building on rapid advancements in science to halt extinctions, protect habitats, eliminate threats and build capacity for bird conservation.

In the 25 years since ABC were formed, we have found that when it comes to bird conservation, fearlessness and persistence pay off. Today, we can imagine a world in which ABC's Vision Statement becomes reality: “An Americas-wide landscape where diverse interests collaborate to ensure that native bird species and their habitats are protected … where their protection is valued by society … and where they are routinely considered in all land-use and policy decision-making.”
