“’Our’ Migrating Birds in Winter:” Steven Albert and Lauren Helton. What are our migrating birds up to while they're down south? Who is finding out, and how? What is the effect of winter habitats on summer breeding? Learn how the Institute for Bird Populations (IBP) is partnering with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in a new initiative to connect conservation organizations in the Upper Midwest with groups protecting and studying migratory birds on their wintering grounds in Latin America. The goal is to help under-resourced conservationists in some 100 groups from Mexico to Argentina achieve their goals, while providing tangible benefits to North American partners. Steve Albert and Lauren Helton are biologists with the IBP.
