Canada and the U.S. - We are connected by nature, by the longest unprotected border in the world. Did you know close to 70% of all North American waterfowl are estimated to breed in Canada? And currently every U.S. dollar donated to help protect and care for wetlands and other migratory bird habitat can be matched 3 to 1! Help protect migratory birds we see in the U.S. Birds like the Long-billed Curlew and the Americna Wigeon.
The Long-billed Curlew is North America's largest shorebird. This shorebird is listed as "at-risk" in Canada under the under Species at Risk Act and is listed as a species of Special Concern in British Columbia. It is on The State of the Birds 2014 Watch List as one of the 233 U.S. bird species most in need of conservation action.
The American Wigeon is a medium-sized duck that breeds in northwestern North America, primarily Canada. In the 2014 State of the Birds Report the American Wigeon was listed as one of the 33 U.S. common bird species in steep decline. Estimates indicate they have lost more than half their global population over the past four decades. Common Birds in Steep Decline
They NEED our help to preserve their nursery!
