    The Institute for Bird Populations is a tax-exempt, 501©(3) California nonprofit corporation dedicated to research and dissemination of information on the abundance, distribution, and ecology of birds, and to facilitating scientifically informed conservation of birds and their habitats.


    The primary goals of The Institute are:

    • to develop, facilitate, coordinate, and conduct scientific research and standardized monitoring of birds and their environments. The Institute focuses especially on programs that can be applied on a global scale, can provide for the long-term monitoring of avian vital rates and population trends, can help identify causes of avian population change, and can aid in formulating management actions to reverse population declines and maintain stable or increasing populations;
    • to educate and train individuals, organizations, and agencies, here and abroad, in avian research and monitoring methods that can elucidate the ecological effects of environmental change and can lead to scientifically defensible strategies for avian and ecosystem conservation; and
    • to serve as a global forum for disseminating information on regional and global changes in the abundance, distribution, and ecology of birds, and the causes of such changes. The Institute presents its findings in scientific and lay publications, and publishes Bird Populations, a scientific journal of global avian demography and biogeography.
