Mission Statement

Birds are excellent indicators of ecosystem health and thus key to wise stewardship. PRBO Conservation Science's 125 staff and seasonal scientists apply bird ecology studies to conserve birds, other wildlife and ecosystems in western North America, the north Pacific Ocean and beyond. Founded in 1965 as Point Reyes Bird Observatory, PRBO Conservation Science partners with hundreds of governmental and non-governmental agencies as well as private interests to ensure that every dollar invested in conservation yields the most for biodiversity -- benefiting our environment, our economy and our communities.

Description

Through our Terrestrial, Wetlands, Marine, Population Ecology, Policy, and Education and Outreach Programs, PRBO: conducts research on common and threatened songbirds, shorebirds, seabirds and other waterbirds, as well as marine mammals and white sharks; evaluates the health of marine, wetlands and terrestrial habitats and ecosystems; publishes findings in peer-reviewed journals; provides management and restoration recommendations to government agencies, nonprofits and private interests; and, educates thousands of students of all ages annually about bird conservation science and environmental stewardship at our Palomarin Visitor Center, in classrooms and in the field.
