BirdLife International is a global Partnership of NGOs striving to conserve birds, their habitats and global biodiversity, working with people towards the sustainable use of natural resources. Currently the Partnership works in 120 countries through national grassroots conservation NGOs.

The BirdLife Americas Partnership is a growing network of national conservation NGOs spanning North and South America. They are working for integrated conservation of birds from the Canadian tundra to Tierra del Fuego. There are BirdLife Partners in nineteen countries and territories in the Americas:

ArgentinaBahamas, Belize, BoliviaBrazil, Colombia Canada a, Canada bChile, Cuba, Dominican RepublicEcuadorEl SalvadorFalkland Islands (Malvinas), MexicoPanamaParaguay, Puerto Rico (to USA), Uruguay and USA.

In countries where BirdLife does not have an official Partner, it works through other NGOs, governments and country programmes. Throughout the Americas, more than 50,000 members and over 1,000 staff are engaged in the regional implementation of BirdLife’s Global Programmes.

The regional implementation of BirdLife Global Programmes by the BirdLife Americas Partnership is supported by the regional Secretariat based in Quito, Ecuador.
