Mission

 

American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is a 501(c)(3), not-for profit organization whose mission is to conserve native birds and their habitats throughout the Americas.

 

Vision

 

We envision 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 they are routinely considered in all land-use and policy decision-making.

 

Niche

 

ABC is the only U.S.-based group with a major focus on bird habitat conservation throughout the entire Americas. ABC acts across the full spectrum of threats to birds to safeguard the rarest bird species, restore habitats, and reduce threats, unifying and strengthening the bird conservation movement.

 

Our Conservation Framework

 

The problems facing birds today are myriad and complex, requiring a far-reaching, bold vision for conservation. ABC has developed a unique and successful strategy to preserve bird diversity and maintain or increase wild bird populations. Read more on ABC's Conservation Framework here.
