Take Action

Hooded Merganser

Speak out for birds! Over 650 species of birds – avocets to woodpeckers – breed in North America. Some species remain year round, while others migrate up to tens of thousands of miles every year. But all birds face risks every day – habitat destruction, invasive species, climate change – and more than 75% of them are in trouble. Birds are critical indicators of the overall health of our environment, telling the story of our air, water, climate and natural resources. Here are some ways you can help – at home, at work, and in your everyday life.

BirdNote tells stories that educate and inspire people to care about nature. Why? Because appreciation for the world we inhabit and share with other species is the first step in creating a society committed to preserving and protecting the health of the planet for future generations.
