Birding is a growing activity around the world, and on Delmarva, the trends are also on the rise. What does that mean for bird conservation?

Register today for a free virtual program on July 26 at 1 pm to learn from an exceptional panel of experts about the economics of bird conservation. Sara Barker from Cornell Lab of Ornithology Center for Avian Population Studies, Jim Rapp, Community Conservation Consulting and Delmarva Birding Weekends, David Satterfield from Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, and Jared Parks from Lower Shore Land Trust will highlight how birds have the power to amplify conservation, stewardship and community outreach.

Lower Shore Land Trust (LSLT) and Eastern Shore Land Conservancy (ESLC), two accredited land trusts working on the Delmarva Peninsula, have partnered to showcase threats to maintaining healthy and sustainable populations of bird populations on Delmarva and those efforts to protect populations by protecting and restoring habitat necessary for their survival. This virtual panel will provide an in-depth assessment of species declines, highlight the importance of strategic partnerships in reaching key decision makers and reaching diverse audiences, and make the case that “Birds are Big Business”.
