Manitoba provides significant habitat for over 30 species of bird listed on either (or both) the federal and provincial species at risk acts. From grassland birds to shorebirds and aerial insectivores to wetland birds, the species currently considered as threatened are representative of a broad range of ecosystems and habitats. There is no one simple solution to reversing long-term declines in many species. This talk will explore the diversity of threatened birds and how different organisations, including government, non-profits and industry are working together to reverse long-term declines in many species and conserve our precious birdlife.
