Most of you are probably aware of the recent study published in Science magazine concerning the decline of North America’s birds. The total number of birds in North America is almost three billion less than it was in the 1970s! Bird populations are shrinking all over the globe. One of the major causes for this decline is loss of habitat. Land preservation for birds (and other wildlife) is more important now than it has ever been in the past.
KingBirder strongly believes in protecting key bird habitats. Therefore, we are proud to announce that we will be donating 10% of the gross revenue collected by KingBirder contests directly to land preservation non-profits such as The Nature Conservancy and the American Bird Conservancy. These organizations do an outstanding job of identifying important bird habitats and protecting them through direct acquisition, easements, or working with partners. Without a place to live and raise their young, there will be no birds!
Be Among the First!
