A team of Bird Studies Canada staff will soon be heading to the 12th Prairie Conservation and Endangered Species Conference in Winnipeg, MB from February 19-21.

Each year, the global extinction risk to all bird species is assessed by BirdLife International, the official Red List Authority for birds for The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™. The 2018 update has just been released.
Giving Tuesday is a growing global movement that celebrates the spirit of giving. We hope you’ll join in this year on Tuesday, November 27th. Show your love for birds and help us meet our goal of raising $10,000 for bird research and conservation!
