American Bird Conservancy


Organisation’s aim: ABC’s aim is to conserve native birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. Its focus is on threats to birds in the Western Hemisphere, including overuse of pesticides, urban sprawl, habitat destruction, and invasive species.

ABC works with partners to achieve four goals: halt extinctions, protect habitats, eliminate threats, and build capacity for bird conservation.


Partner History

ABC was founded in 1994 by George Fenwick, who saw the need for a bird conservation group that wasn’t afraid to take on the difficult issues facing birds, such as pesticides and habitat destruction.


Partnership with WLT

World Land Trust and ABC share many project partners throughout South America. They have collaborated on several successful projects, including an extension to Buenaventura reserve in Ecuador and El Dorado reserve in Colombia.
