The State of Canada’s Birds #1

Bird Canada is featuring a series of posts from Ted Chesky, Nature Canada’s Manager of Bird Conservation. He is outlining the findings in The State of Canada’s Birds report which draws on 40 years of data to create the first-ever comprehensive picture of the current health of Canada’s birds. Released by the North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI-Canada), under the leadership of Environment Canada, Bird Studies Canada, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Nature Canada, the Nature Conservancy of Canada and Wildlife Habitat Canada, the report points to the strong influence of human activity on bird populations, both positive and negative, as well as the need for urgent action for bird conservation.
