Initiated by BirdLife International in the 1980's, the Important Bird Areas (IBA) Program helps conserve birds and biodiversity by setting science-based priorities for habitat conservation. In the U.S, the National Audubon Society and partners have identified over 2,600 IBAs covering more than 270 million acres of habitat. Local stewardship groups, comprised of professional and volunteer community and conservation leaders, are actively working to conserve these sites.
