Migratory Birds to Benefit from $20 Million in Funding Throughout the Americas
Every summer, backyards across America fill with the color and sound of millions of migratory birds. Many of these birds depend on wintering grounds across the Americas to survive. These long distance travelers will benefit from $20 million in federal and matching funds from the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA).
The NMBCA provides critical funding each year for bird conservation and research throughout the Western Hemisphere and is the only source of federal funding solely dedicated to the conservation of our shared migratory bird heritage. This year, more than $3.8 million in federal funds will be matched by more than $16.2 million in partner contributions going to 24 collaborative conservation projects in 15 countries across the Americas.
