Our Mission:
Protect birds and their habitats around the Gulf of Mexico and beyond.

More than 300 bird species rely on Gulf habitat at some point in their lives. The region sees more bird migration traffic than any other area, but much of it is threatened by coastal development, urbanization, and natural and man-made disasters. We fulfill our mission of protecting the birds and their habitats by using sound scientific research, land protection and enhancement, community engagement, and educational outreach.

Hello wonderful GCBO supporters! Our headquarters was hit hard by a storm. Due to a large number of fallen trees and some broken power lines, we are not able to get onto the property at the moment. For that reason we are CANCELING XHX on September 18th. We still plan to have it on the 25th. We apologize for any inconveniences that this cancelation causes! Please stay tuned for more updates as we try to work around this. -GCBO staff
