As the human population rockets past 7 billion, natural habitats are increasingly lost. Those that remain are dotted with man-made threats. As a result, hundreds of bird species are spiraling toward extinction. Learn more and act now!
Hundreds of bird species are on a track toward extinction. If these species blink out, we’ll have just one species to blame: ours.
Rainforests are felled. Woodlots become parking lots. Grasslands become agricultural fields. Is it any wonder so many bird species are in decline?

Species that evolved together over millions of years are thrown out of balance by invasive species, often with devastating results.
Climate change will affect birds, but exactly how is less than certain. We’re acting to conserve birds at risk now, regardless of how the future unfolds.
Lots of people love birds. Even so, lack of financial resources and political will threaten the measures needed to protect them.
