Broad-tailed HummingbirdThe Arizona Bird Conservation Initiative (ABCI) was born at the Arizona All-Birds Conservation Workshop held in September of 2002. ABCI’s mission is to implement the recommendations for the conservation of high priority bird species or habitats as identified by the APIF Bird Conservation Plan or any of the four major bird initiatives grouped under the North American Bird Conservation Initiative.

Goals

  • Develop diverse partnerships dedicated to the conservation of all birds and their habitats
  • Serve as a forum for information sharing and coordination via regional ABCI committees with all bird conservation partners
  • Through broad-based consensus, identify and prioritize bird conservation opportunities and needs
  • Encourage implementation of landscape-oriented multi-species conservation efforts
  • Fund implementation of on-the-ground bird conservation projects

Strategies

  • Coordinate the planning and implementation of existing bird conservation initiatives
  • Network and coordinate with agencies, organizations and volunteers to establish a program of short- and long-term monitoring projects for birds throughout Arizona
  • Coordinate with Joint Ventures, Audubon Society’s Important Bird Area Program and other programs with objectives similar to ABCI
  • Coordinate bird conservation activities with federal and state land management agencies, private organizations and other interested parties
  • Promote education and outreach activities that heighten general public awareness of birds and their habitats

Committees
ABCI Regional Committees are open to any interested parties. The primary objectives of the committees are to:

  • Develop projects to support the APIF Bird Conservation Plan and other regional or national initiatives
  • Provide a forum for collaboration among those working in land and wildlife management and conservation.
