Bird Conservancy of the Rockies

Mission and Vision

Founded in 1988, Bird Conservancy of the Rockies (formerly Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory) conserves birds and their habitats through an integrated approach of science, education and land stewardship. Our work radiates from the Rockies to the Great Plains, Mexico and beyond.

Mission: conserving birds and their habitats through science, education and land stewardship

Vision: healthy, native bird populations sustained in healthy, native ecosystems

The Bird Conservancy accomplishes its mission by:

  • Monitoring long-term bird population trends to provide a scientific foundation for conservation action
  • Researching bird ecology and population response to anthropogenic and natural processes to evaluate and adjust management and conservation strategies using the best available science
  • Educating people of all ages through active, experiential programs that create an awareness of and appreciation for birds
  • Partnering with state and federal natural resource agencies, private citizens, schools, universities and other non-governmental organizations to build synergy and consensus for bird conservation
  • Fostering good stewardship on private and public lands through voluntary, cooperative partnerships that create win-win situations for wildlife and people
  • Sharing the latest information on bird populations, land management and conservation practices to create informed publics
  • Delivering bird conservation at biologically relevant scales by working across political and jurisdictional boundaries in western North America and beyond
