Conservation Grants

Protecting the birds of the Americas and their habitats.

Thanks to additional funding from the World Parrot Trust and a generous gift from the Barbara Delano Foundation, the Washington-based American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is supporting 13 parrot conservation projects in 10 countries. The ABC, a conservation group dedicated to protecting the birds of the Americas and their habitats, launched a special program to address the conservation needs of dangerously threatened parrots in 1998. During the summer of 1998, the ABC issued a call for proposals, accompanied by a list of priority species to parrot conservationists across the continent, and they soon received a number of extremely high-quality project proposals. The ABC then teamed up with the United Kingdom-based World Parrot Trust, whose director, Mike Reynolds, joined the expert review committee, along with Don Bruning of the Bronx Zoo. One exciting result was the confirmation of a breeding population of yellow-eared parrots at a site in the Colombian Andes. The Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund recently provided a major grant to enhance conservation action at three of the project sites, and the Kaytee Avian Foundation and World Parks Endowment are also contributing significantly. For more information on how you can help, contact Mike Parr at (202) 778-9705 or mparr@abcbirds.org.
