Bird Conservation

Andrea Cuéllar Brito

Program Coordinator

Northwestern Mexico harbors more than 500 bird species, 70 of which are endemic. Many of these populations are extremely vulnerable and their conservation has become an international priority. We work with these and other relevant species, either due to their endemism or to their endangered status.

Also, we are implementing activities related to priority groups, such as shorebirds and seabirds. Our projects focus on the protection of their habitat, but we also develop applied research, conservation plans, and local, regional, national and multinational participation strategies.

We achieved the international designation of more than 1,976,000 acres as Important Bird Areas.

Northwestern Mexico is home to more than 500 bird species including 70 endemic species. Many of this population are extremely vulnerable and its conservation has become an international priority.

We also work with other species of interest because of their endemism and because they are threatened, as well as with priority groups like beach and marine birds.

Our projects focus in habitat protection but we also conduct research, and make conservation plans and local, regional, national and multinational strategic participation.

We achieved international designation of more than 800 thousand acres such as Importance Areas for Bird Conservation. Two million birds of over 100 species under monitoring protocols and conservation.

El noroeste de México alberga más de 500 especies de aves, incluyendo 70 especies endémicas. Muchas de estas poblaciones son sumamente vulnerables, y su conservación se ha vuelto una prioridad internacional. Trabajamos con éstas y otras especies de interés ya sea por su endemismo o por encontrarse amenazadas, así como con grupos prioritarios como son las aves playeras y marinas.Nuestros proyectos se enfocan en la protección de hábitat, pero también realizamos investigaciones aplicadas, planes de conservación y estrategias de participación local, regional, nacional y multinacional.

Logramos la designación internacional de más de 800 mil hectáreas como Áreas de Importancia para la Conservación de las Aves. 2 millones de aves de más de 100 especies bajo protocolos de monitoreo y conservación.
