American Bird Conservancy is the Western Hemisphere’s bird conservation specialist—the only organization with a singular and steadfast commitment to achieving conservation results for native wild birds and their habitats throughout the Americas.
With a focus on efficiency and working in partnership, we take on the toughest problems facing birds today, innovating and building on sound science to halt extinctions, protect habitats, eliminate threats, and build capacity for bird conservation.
ABC works with more than 20 in-country partner organizations on more than 60 projects throughout the Americas, including a network of protected areas totaling more than 850,000 acres.
ABC raises the profile of bird conservation at the global scale through its leadership of the Alliance for Zero Extinction (AZE) initiative. AZE is an alliance of more than 90 organizations world-wide working at the national policy level to prevent the extinction of species that are classified as Endangered or Critically Endangered under IUCN-World Conservation Union criteria and are restricted to single remaining sites.
