Working on working lands.

Working lands represent one of the best hopes for conservation. These parcels of forests, ranches, and farms add up to roughly a billion acres鈥攐r about half the land in the entire Lower 48 states. 探花精选 collaborates with landowners, land managers, government agencies, and private industry across the hemisphere to increase the quality of habitat on privately managed lands to benefit 20 flagship bird species. 探花精选 also helps landowners and land managers apply bird-friendly practices on their lands.
