Albuquerque Urban Bird Treaty Signed
city celebrates with partners
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, joined by a number of partners, officially designated the City of Albuquerque as an Urban Bird Treaty City on Saturday, August 6, 2016. The treaty signing event recognized the migratory bird conservation and education accomplishments to date in Albuquerque under a two-year Urban Bird Treaty grant and celebrated the renewed commitment of partners to continue work in Albuquerque for migratory birds beyond the grant.
The Urban Bird Treaty program is a unique collaborative effort between the Service and cities, bringing together private citizens, Federal, State, and municipal agencies and non-government organizations.
