Learn About Bird Conservation
Birds do not abide by political
boundaries. The divisions between states and countries mean
less to birds than the differences between habitats, landscapes
and resources. To that end NABCI has redrawn the map of North
America as it applies to coordinated bird conservation needs.

What is a Bird Conservation
BCRs are regions that encompass
landscapes having similar bird communities, habitats, and
resource issues. They are the fundamental biological units
through which NABCI will deliver landscape-scale bird conservation,
including evaluation, planning, and in many instances, implementation.
67 Bird Conservation Regions have been identified, 35 entirely
or partially in the United States, 3 strictly in Canada and
29 strictly in Mexico.
