Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
This fourth State of the Birds report highlights the enormous contributions private landowners make to bird and habitat conservation, and opportunities for increased contributions. Roughly 60% of land area in the United States (1.43 billion acres) is privately owned by millions of individuals, families, organizations, and corporations, including 2 million ranchers and farmers and about 10 million woodland owners. More than 100 species have 50% or more of their U.S. breeding distribution on private lands.
Thank you to the thousands of Midwestern private landowners helping us create a world where birds thrive! Read all about it here: http://stateofthebirds.org/.
