This project is a collaboration with SFI and ABC to develop actionable science to support the conservation of birds on managed forest lands in the Boreal Transition Region of the US and Canada. 

Project Summary

BAM is collaborating with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and American Bird Conservancy (ABC) to develop a cross-border initiative for bird conservation on managed forest lands. The project area is the Upper Great Lakes region of BCR 12 (Boreal Hardwood Transition). The cross-border project will focus on the co-production of actionable science with local forest industry, government, and community partners to identify opportunities and challenges for forest management to benefit bird populations.

Within BAM this project is led by Andy Crosby.

Workshops & Webinars

On June 3, 2020, we held an e-workshop to present the project proposal and begin to engage potential partners. Following this workshop, we received substantial interest in this project as well as volunteers to participate in a steering group to help develop goals and a plan to move this project forward.

We have been soliciting additional data for the United States portion of the BCR 12 study region. If you have data from this region and would be willing to share it with BAM or this project please contact us.
