Join us in Celebrating the Landmark Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial
August 16, 2016
One hundred years ago, the first Migratory Bird Treaty was signed between the United States and Canada, marking an historic moment in international wildlife conservation. Today, the two nations celebrate the monumental success of this agreement in bringing many birds back from the brink. The treaty provided a model for similar agreements with other nations and paved the way for regulations that continue to protect birds and their habitats today in the face of many new challenges. Learn more about how you can help celebrate, enjoy and protect our winged friends.
