Audubon’s new, ground-breaking report, Survival by Degrees: 389 Bird Species on the Brink, shows that two-thirds of North American bird species are at risk of extinction from climate change. But if we act quickly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we can help improve the chances for the overwhelming majority of species at risk.
“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 where they are routinely considered in all land-use and policy decision-making.”
ProAves is a registered non-profit organization with free membership, open to all who share our vision to prevent the extinction of threatened species and protect key sites, with the help of citizens who are proud of their natural resources and who will promote development in harmony with nature.
The Hawk Migration Association of North America (HMANA) was founded in 1974 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the State of New York. HMANA’s mission is “To advance the scientific knowledge and promote conservation of raptor populations through study, enjoyment, and appreciation of raptor migration.”
We collaborate locally, nationally, and globally with individuals, government agencies, and NGOs in diverse fields to assess the effects of land management actions, climate change, and other ecological stressors on bird populations, and prescribe practical solutions. We use cutting-edge science, and frequently publish results in peer-reviewed journals. Our primary goals are to:Conduct research and monitoring that supports effective bird conservation.Disseminate our findings, often by publishing our research results in scientific journals.Help train the next generation of avian conservationists.
