BirdLife has various projects taking place worldwide, each responding to specific conservation issues.
Considered the most biodiverse region in the world, the Tropical Andes covers less than 1% of the world’s land surface, yet it is home to nearly one-sixth of all plant species on the planet, and more amphibian, bird, and mammal species than any other equivalent area.
Our planet is in the midst its sixth mass extinction event, with climate change, habitat destruction and other human activities devastating the diversity of life on the planet. But while the crisis is undeniably urgent, there’s also hope. Humans may create huge challenges – but with enough support, dedication and resources, we can also reverse them.
BirdLife’s ambitious island restoration work addresses this outsized impact on extinctions integrating the species, sites and society pillars of its new strategy. Working with local BirdLife partners and local communities around the globe, in the Pacific, off Latin America, or the California coast for example, we help restore island ecosystems by eradicating invasive alien species. The work improves livelihoods, food security, health and wellbeing.
