  • Title: U.S. NABCI
    Descriptive info: What is the U.. NABCI Committee?.. A.. Coaltion for Integrated Bird Conservation.. Started in 1999, the U.. North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI) Committee is a coalition of government agencies, private organizations, and bird initiatives in the United States working to ensure the long-term health of North America's native bird populations.. The Committee is dedicated to advancing.. , based on sound science and cost-effective management, to benefit all birds in all habitats.. Through the work of the Committee and its subcommittees, U.. NABCI participants are increasing the effectiveness of conservation initiatives and programs by enhancing coordination on specific topics such as monitoring, private lands, policy and legislative issues, international collaboration, conservation design, and federal and state agency support for bird conservation.. Vision:.. We envision populations and habitats of North America's birds that are protected, restored, and enhanced through coordinated efforts at international, national, regional, state, and local levels, guided by sound science and effective management.. Goal:.. We aim to deliver the full spectrum of bird conservation through regionally based, biologically driven,.. landscape-oriented partnerships.. NABCI Committee and subcommittees provide forums for:.. Initiating and broadening partnerships for bird conservation across the continent;.. Increasing funding for conserving birds in the United States and wherever else they may occur during their life cycles;.. Making partnerships and resources more effective and efficient by fostering integrated bird conservation;.. Building on existing structures for delivering bird conservation, such as joint ventures, and stimulating new joint venture-like structures and mechanisms as appropriate;.. Developing a common biological  ...   Across Taxonomic Groups.. Birds of different taxonomic groups, such as waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, and songbirds, often share the same habitats or use adjoining habitats within the landscape.. By using a common spatial language and ecological framework to identify priority habitats and sites shared among birds of different taxonomic groups, conservation actions can be directed comprehensively to all priority birds within a landscape.. Finding such 'common ground' is key to conserving North America's precious bird diversity.. Conserving Birds Across Landscapes.. Both humans and wildlife depend upon the bounty of the earth's natural landscapes for sustenance and survival.. Sustainable landscape-level conservation thus requires that the biological needs of birds, and a host of other wildlife, be successfully incorporated into land-use policies, programs, and management practices affecting broad landscapes at regional scales.. Since bird populations respond throughout their ranges to variations in landscape-level conditions, bird conservation must be delivered in the context of achieving a pre-established design of landscape sustainability..

    Descriptive info: Bird Conservation Regions.. View an.. interactive.. with BCR descriptions, contacts, and links to bird conservation plans.. To access.. ArcInfo files.. of the BCRs,.. click here.. or use Acrobat Reader or similar program to download the following.. pdf documents.. :.. Bird Conservation Region Map.. |.. Bird Conservation Region Descriptions.. What are Bird Conservation Regions?.. Bird Conservation Regions (BCRs) are ecologically distinct regions in North America with similar bird communities, habitats, and resource management issues.. BCRs are a single application of the scale-flexible hierarchical framework of nested ecological units delineated by the.. Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC).. The CEC framework comprises a hierarchy of 4 levels of ecoregions.. At each spatial level, spatial resolution increases and ecoregions encompass areas that are progressively more similar in their biotic (e.. g.. , plant and wildlife) and abiotic (e.. , soils, drainage patterns, temperature, and annual precipitation) characteristics.. BCRs may be partitioned into smaller ecological units when finer scale conservation planning, implementation, and evaluation are necessary.. Conversely, BCRs may be aggregated to facilitate conservation partnerships throughout the annual range of a group of species, recognizing that migratory species may use multiple BCRs throughout their annual life cycle.. BCRs also facilitate domestic and international cooperation in bird conservation because these areas of relatively homogenous habitats and bird communities traverse state, provincial, and national borders.. How were BCRs developed?..  ...   requirements.. The map was presented to and approved by the US NABCI Committee during its November 1999, meeting.. The map is a dynamic tool.. Its BCR boundaries will change over time as new scientific information becomes available.. It is expected that the map will be updated every three years, with the next update occurring in November 2002.. What are the primary purposes of BCRs?.. The primary purposes of BCRs, as proposed by the mapping team in 1998 and approved in concept by the US Committee in 1999, are to:.. facilitate communication among the bird conservation initiatives;.. systematically and scientifically apportion the US into conservation units;.. facilitate a regional approach to bird conservation;.. promote new, expanded, or restructured partnerships; and.. identify overlapping or conflicting conservation priorities.. As integrated bird conservation progresses in North America, Bird Conservation Regions should ultimately function as the primary units within which biological foundation issues are resolved, the landscape configuration of sustainable habitats is designed, and priority projects originate.. For more information on the ecological framework and the philosophy behind the development of BCRs, download the following document:.. A Proposed Framework for Delineating Ecologically-based Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation Units for Cooperative Bird Conservation in the US..
