Conserving North America's Bird Nursery in the Face of Climate Change

October 2018   |   Report
Boreal Songbird Initiative

A new report by the Boreal Songbird Initiative identifies areas of Canada’s Boreal Forest that hold the key to birds’ long-term survival. This first-of-its-kind assessment examined 53 bird species and found that more than half could face declines—some up to 70 percent—if steps are not taken to conserve important habitat. While conditions in some bird habitats are expected to shift, large landscapes within the boreal region will remain relatively stable. Protecting these boreal lands will offer birds the best chance to thrive.

Links to the full report as well as additional resources (press release, graphics, and maps) can be found on this page.
