North American Bird Conservation Initiative

North American Bird Conservation Initiative

The past few years have seen significant progress in the bird conservation community. The North American Waterfowl Management Plan is maturing as a model of successful conservation. Partners In Flight is making huge impact on landbird conservation in the United States and is beginning to gain significant ground in Canada. The Strategy for the Conservation of birds in Mexico is off to a dynamic start. Shorebird Conservation Plans are under development in the United States and Canada, and efforts have begun to plan for comprehensive protection for colonial waterbirds. The goal of the North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI) is to cause the combined effectiveness of these separate programs to far exceed the total of their parts.

Adirondack Cooperative Loon Program

Adirondack Cooperative Loon Program

The Adirondack Cooperative Loon Program (ACLP) is a collaborative research and education effort studying the natural history of the Common Loon (Gavia immer) and the effects of contaminants and human interactions on the loon population in the Adirondack Park. ACLP evolved from loon contaminant research conducted by the Northeast Loon Study Workgroup in the Park from 1998-2000. ACLP was initiated in the spring of 2001 to further expand upon this work. The ACLP is a partnership of the Wildlife Conservation Society, Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, BioDiversity Research Institute, and the Audubon Society of New York State, Inc.

The Wilson Ornithological Society

The Wilson Ornithological Society

The Wilson Society, founded in 1888, is a world-wide organization of nearly 2500 people who share a curiosity about birds. Named in honor of Alexander Wilson, the Father of American Ornithology, the Society publishes a quarterly journal of ornithology, The Wilson Journal of Ornithology (formerly The Wilson Bulletin), and holds annual meetings.

Perhaps more than any other biological science, ornithology has been advanced by the contributions of persons in other chosen professions. The Wilson Society recognizes the unique role of the serious amateur in ornithology. Fundamental to its mission, the Society has distinguished itself with a long tradition of promoting a strong working relationship among all who study birds. Each year the Wilson Society awards a number of small grants for ornithological research.
