Find a Globally Important Bird Area by State

The map below links by state to all 500 sites designated by American Bird Conservancy as Globally Important Bird Areas. On each state page is the list of IBAs for that state with links to the homepage of the IBA itself. American Bird Conservancy has also collaborated with to provide a field guide to the birds found at each IBA.


Some sites cross state boundaries and are listed here under each state. Where individual IBAs are part of a larger land area, the larger area is listed in parentheses.
