Today, one in eight of the world’s 10,000 bird species is threatened with extinction. These globally threatened birds are destined to be lost forever unless targeted conservation action is quickly put in place to protect them and reduce the threats they face. You can be a part of the recovery by acting today and supporting The BirdLife Preventing Extinctions Programme – a global conservation initiative designed to help turn the tide on the species extinction crisis.
