Have you noticed how amazing birds are? What a wonderful time of year to listen to bird songs. I love watching birds eat at the feeders, drink and bathe in birdbath, and singing to each other.
Unfortunately, our precious feathered friends are being wiped off the planet.
3 BILLION have vanished!!! From the Natural Conservancy:
“But the sobering reality is: we’ve lost a staggering 3 billion birds since 1970 — and that’s why keen observations from citizen scientists like yourself are crucial for the future of conservation. Like Meredith B. in Maryland, who saw a Baltimore oriole in her yard, or Alice M. in Ohio who spotted a rose-breasted grosbeak at her feeder — your reports provide valuable insights on the natural world we are working so hard to protect together.
With so many species at risk, your continued support is essential. Make a special donation to help protect migratory birds and their habitat today and any amount you contribute right now will be triple matched — up to a total of $15,000.
As a Nature Conservancy member, you are a critical partner in our work fighting climate change and habitat loss, two of the main drivers in birds’ drastic decline. With your support, The Nature Conservancy developed the award-winning Site Wind Right tool — an interactive map that uses the best available science to build wind energy without destroying vital habitat for birds and other wildlife.
This is just one example of how you are helping accelerate the transition to a clean energy future and protect the birds that call these fragile ecosystems home. But we can’t continue our important work safeguarding vulnerable species without support from caring people like you.
…our birds “give us hope and inspiration, and they bring us comfort in these uncertain times.”
