Bird conservation practices are increasingly necessary to address the impacts of human activities that have accelerated extinctions and continue to threaten bird populations in Indiana, the United States, and worldwide.
Habitat loss and fragmentation, human disturbance, chemical toxins and pollution, as well as introduced diseases, predators, and competitors are some of the threats that need to be addressed to reverse bird declines and maintain healthy populations.
The main objectives of bird conservation are to
Identify population declines that signal underlying degradation of habitats and ecosystems
Identify the causes for these declines, and
Find biological solutions such as habitat preservation which can be used to repair the underlying causes of bird declines.
