The Important Bird Areas Program and YOU
Presented by Andrea Jones, Important Bird Areas Program Director for
The Important Bird Areas Program is a global effort to identify and
conserve habitat vital to birds and other biodiversity. This program
identifies critical sites that provide essential habitat for one or
more species of bird. In California , such sites must be less than
100,000 acres in size, possess a bird community distinct from the
surrounding region, and meet other criteria. A site�s designation as
an Important Bird Area is a powerful distinction which can be
utilized to leverage conservation efforts.
Andrea Jones, Audubon California�s Director of the Important Bird
Areas Program, will speak in depth about the Important Bird Areas
program and highlight some of Los Angeles County�s designated
Important Bird Areas as well as other areas in southern California.
Andrea will discuss how Los Angeles Audubon members can get involved
with this program. She will welcome input about conservation
concerns and visions for the region, so please bring your ideas!
We, as birders, should be on the look out for our bird's and
wildlife's welfare and I believe you will learn how to make a
difference by listening to Andrea's talk.
