Bird Conservation Plans

During the last two decades of the 20th century, a surge of interest in conserving birds and their habitats spurred the development of several unprecedented, partnership-based bird conservation initiatives. These initiatives have produced national and international conservation plans for birds that lay out species status assessments, population objectives, habitat conservation issues and objectives, and monitoring needs.

You can find in the links below existing bird conservation plans at the national and international level:

Landbirds

North American Landbird Conservation Plan

Canadian Landbird Conservation Program

Shorebirds

Canadian Shorebird Conservation Plan

U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan

Waterbirds

Waterbird Conservation for the Americas

Wings over Water: Canada's Waterbird Conservation Plan

Waterfowl

North American Waterfowl Management Plan

In addition to national and international plans, the bird initiatives are producing regional plans that provide more detailed information on population and habitat needs for birds in specific landscapes. To view or download conservation plans at the BCR scale for the various taxa (i.e., landbirds, shorebirds, waterbirds, waterfowl) - as well as a limited number of all bird plans - visit the BCR map
