Important Bird Areas

There are 12,000 Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) worldwide. BirdLife International has recently released an updated list of 422 sites that are considered “IBAs in Danger.” These critically endangered sites are of international significance for the conservation of the world’s birds and other nature, but face pressing threats of damage or destruction.
