Saving Birds Thru Habitat
Quote:
Mission Statement:
To protect, enhance and restore habitat for North American birds and to educate people of all ages about this important mission and how to achieve it.
Quote:
Saving Birds Thru Habitat was established to help stem the decline of our migratory songbird populations. The three-cornered keystone of our program is to introduce children to the fascinating aspects of our bird world; to encourage homeowners to return their yards to native plantings; and to persuade businesses and property owners with large holdings to maintain existing habitat.
Quote:
"Study after study has shown that habitat loss and degradation are the primary threats to healthy bird populations. Nothing else comes close. That's why I am such a strong supporter of Saving Birds Thru Habitat and its programs that teach so many people how to improve habitats for birds." Dr. Gregory Butcher, Director of Bird Conservation National Audubon Society

Sounds great. I like how it brings things together...I can't really say what came first for me, but I think it was a love of wildflowers and trees which brought my focus on native plants...but I've also had a love of and interest in birds and other wildlife. Until I found this great forum, I always talked about native plants...I'm sure I was interested in providing for wildlife as well...but now I try to promote the whole picture.

I guess I feel this site can pull people in who are just bird lovers to become lovers of native plants as well. Great find.
