American Bird Conservancy
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.”
A newly released State of the Birds report for the United States is a tale of two trends, one dire and one hopeful. While over half of the country’s bird species are in decline, investments in wetland conservation have seen long-term increases in waterfowl populations, once again showcasing the change that can be achieved with effective conservation.
This week, David Rothenberg and Olivia Chaney will perform at the BirdLife100 World Congress, sharing the beauty of birdsong with members of the BirdLife Partnership. By listening to the Birdsong Project, you can celebrate and enjoy the beauty of birdsong from wherever you are in the world.
