The Boreal Forest of North America is one of the world’s last, large intact forest regions. It stretches from Alaska east to Newfoundland, and supports between one and three billion birds, earning it's nickname "North America’s Bird Nursery”. Few people know that some of the world’s largest land conservation actions, to protect birds and their habitats, are underway in the Boreal. Led by Indigenous governments and communities, they are forging new, exciting partnership and stewardship models.
Audubon's Boreal Conservation program is working to conserve the Boreal Forest through some innovative, collaborative models with Indigenous partners, and modern technology and research with partners like the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. In an online event hosted by the Merrymeeting Audubon Chapter of Maine, Jeff Wells will talk about the importance of the Boreal Forest and the work being done to protect it.
