local action to bring birds back
An explosive new report published in Science finds we've lost nearly 3 billion birds since 1970. Backyard birds, grassland birds, forest birds...more than a quarter of our birds gone in a single lifetime. Some good news emerged as well though. Conservation works! Species such as waterfowl, raptors, and woodpeckers, where we've invested in habitat protection and restoration, have all shown population increases over the same time period. When we take action, birds recover.
