“Conservation Milestones”, v. 2015

One of the most exciting parts of Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community is “Conservation Milestones“, a place where birders like you can share their personal accomplishments in the realms of environmental education and conservation. Noah Strycker did a wonderful job working with the contributors to compile an engaging and inspiring compendium, but he needed your contributions to make it a reality.

So many birders are doing things large and small to build a better future for birds and for birders, and these accomplishments are just as significant sources of pride and excitement as any listing milestone–often more so. The stories tend to be a bit more complex, involving more than a simple number, species, and place, so these milestones are a bit longer than the listing ones. We’re especially enthusiastic about stories that include photos and/or include contact information and other resources to help those who’d like to emulate the kinds of contributions others are celebrating.

To read “Conservation Milestones” and to find out how to contribute to next year’s compendium, click here. The entirety of Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community is available online. It’s just one of the many free services the ABA provides to the greater birding community!
