The Earth's biological diversity rests in our hands. Birds, other wildlife, and their habitats are an integral part of the delicate ecological balance that supports all living beings, including humans. Each species relies on a natural ecological pattern for survival and disruptions can have devastating effects. Today's abundant resources, technologies, and innovations bring with them the long-term environmental responsibility to protect, conserve, and restore ecosystems for the benefit of all; including humans, birds, wildlife, and native vegetation.
