Tireless efforts to conserve songbirds

24 October 2020 # Hope

Trump administration and some environmentalists are calling a regulatory and collaborative success story, the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced it is removing the notably loudmouthed songbird (Kirtland's warbler) from the endangered species list.

In 1971, the Kirtland's warbler population declined to approximately 201 singing males. Thanks to human efforts for 50 tireless years they are now out of Endangered List. Efforts include reforestation and putting a ban on hunting.

This remarkable bird has a most impressive, exemplary success story that illustrates effective conservation and collaboration at work.
