The American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is a non-profit membership organization with the mission of conserving native birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. Its focus is on threats to birds in the western hemisphere—threats which include overuse of pesticides, urban sprawl, habitat destruction, and invasive species. ABC works in cooperation with other groups and agencies, including: Fundación ProAves, The Bird Conservation Alliance, Partners in Flight, the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, and others. Their partner projects have included publication of bird guides, education on the location and construction of wind turbines, educating farmers to promote bird-friendly agriculture, and raptor conservation. Their Conservation Counterparts Program helps other organizations fundraise for Latin America and Caribbean conservation projects.
