Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
We are pleased to announce that "Saving Our Shared Birds: Partners in Flight Tri-National Vision for Landbird Conservation" is now available! Government officials, on behalf of international bird conservation leaders from the United States, Canada, and Mexico, released the report today at the XV Annual Trilateral Committee for Wildlife and Ecosystem Conservation and Management meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Thank you to all of you who contributed to the report’s development and communications. Particularly, thank you for the hard work and stick-to-it-ness of the authors: Coro Arizmendi, Carol Beardmore, Humberto Berlanga, Peter Blancher, Gregory Butcher, Andrew Couturier, Ashley Dayer, Dean Demarest, Wendy Easton, Mary Gustafson, Eduardo Inigo-Elias, Judith Kennedy, Elsie Krebs, Arvind Panjabi, Terry Rich, Vicente Rodriguez Contreras, Ken Rosenberg, Janet Ruth, Eduardo Santana Castellon, Rosa Ma Vidal, and Tom Will. And a round of applause for the designers Susan Steiner Spear and Joanne Uy Avila.
The tri-national assessment followed Partners in Flight’s process of scientific evaluations of conservation vulnerability for 882 native landbirds to Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Please note that the results of this new tri-national species assessment do not replace the priorities and objectives identified previously in the 2004 PIF Landbird Conservation Plan (Rich et al. 2004) or regional priorities in the PIF species assessment database. The messages in this report are highly relevant to successful conservation of all North American landbirds.

We urge you all to continue your important bird conservation work at various scales and consider how you can take even more action for tri-national landbird conservation.
