Despite the complex array of threats facing birds and their habitats, the opportunity to advance bird conservation has never been greater than it is today, thanks to the growth of the birding movement and to technical advances in bird conservation practice—many of which are led by ABC.
To take full advantage of these opportunities, ABC has launched a five-year, $40 million campaign, based on the principles of leadership, program excellence, innovation, and results, to advance the cause of bird conservation across the Americas.
The campaign aims to safeguard the rarest birds, conserve habitat for declining species, and eliminate the worst threats to bird populations. It will also help ABC lead the way in bird conservation science and innovation through a new Institute for Bird Conservation, and supercharge the bird movement through a broad-based Bird... More »

Global Warming Puts the Arctic on Thin Ice
Answers to questions about the Arctic's shrinking ice cap and its global significance.
Why are global warming specialists watching the Arctic so closely? What kinds of changes are taking place in the Arctic now? How does this dramatic ice melt affect the Arctic? Will Arctic ice melt have any effects beyond the polar region? Can we do anything to stop global warming?
1. Why are global warming specialists watching the Arctic so closely?
The Arctic is global warming's canary in the coal mine. It's a highly sensitive region, and it's being profoundly affected by the changing climate. Most scientists view what's happening... More »
