Please join us to celebrate the Centennial of the first Migratory Bird Treaty by attending a discussion panel: “Understanding Migratory Birds to Advance Competitiveness in the North American Region.”
The “State of North America’s Birds” is a report developed under a NAFTA collaborative framework that provides key findings for governments, private industry, and the public to come together to support migratory birds and their habitats for a sustainable future. This unprecedented, continent-wide analysis demonstrates the power of people to understand the value of nature and to make conservation happen for an enduring prosperity.
