Rainforest Alliance recently announced the bilingual Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Forum
, created "to provide migratory bird conservation organizations, government agencies and researchers with a bilingual platform to facilitate collaboration and cooperation across geographic and language barriers."
“All of the countries in the Western Hemisphere share a common heritage — our migratory species,” said Melissa Normann, Neotropics communications manager at Rainforest Alliance. “Because the ranges of these species span national borders, well-coordinated international cooperation is necessary to ensure their conservation.”
The forum's eight categories include news/event information, bird-friendly agriculture, climate change, ecosystem restoration, environmental education, monitoring/inventories, shorebird/waterbird conservation and Southern Wings.
