Americas Flyways Initiative

The Americas Flyway Initiative was developed by an alliance of BirdLife International, the National Audubon Society, and CAF – Development Bank of Latin America. It is the hemispheric response to the urgent biodiversity loss and the climate crises we are facing. The initiative will identify 30+ critical landscapes and seascapes along the Americas flyways for urgent conservation, restoration, and management by local partners, communities, and Indigenous peoples. It aims to integrate and scale-up nature-based climate solutions through major economic sustainable development projects designed to include safeguards across a network of critical habitats for declining populations of shared migratory birds throughout the Americas. 

We invite you to join us online on December 16, at 10:00 a.m. EST, for the announcement of the Americas Flyways Initiative, which represents an unprecedented investment in bird and biodiversity conservation in Latin America and the Caribbean.
