North American Bird Conservation Initiative

The U.S. North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI) is dedicated to promoting and advancing integrated bird conservation. Online you will find a variety of tools and resources including an easy-to-browse Bird Conservation Regions (BCR) map hot-linked to BCR descriptions, the Bird Conservation Node maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Fish Wildlife Service, and regional bird conservation plans.

The site contains a host of information about NABCI, including downloadable documents such as the NABCI Vision, the U.S. Committee's Action Plan, and Committee and Working Group contact lists and meeting summaries. The site also provides links to the NABCI International site and the Canadian and Mexican national NABCI sites.

For more information about NABCI, contact Roxanne Bogart.
