Red-legged HoneycreeperThe majority of North America’s bird populations are migratory, thus, the protection of required wintering grounds in Latin America is essential to their survival. Because habitat loss in the tropics is so extensive, in early 2008, we expanded our Gulf of Mexico avian conservation programs to include protection of wintering habitat used by vast numbers of migratory landbirds. With a substantial contribution from an anonymous donor, GCBO established a permanent fund for land acquisition in Central and South America. The fund has now grown to greater than $830,000 and is expected to reach $1,000,000 soon. Proceeds from this endowment are providing grant dollars to proven and respected Latin American conservation organizations for the fee acquisition of habitat for migratory birds, as well as rare and threatened flora and fauna. This is an exciting and important opportunity for bird conservation! Please check out the 27 acquisitions, in 10 countries, we have helped to date.
