DescriptionIn working towards a vision of integrated bird conservation, scientists, conservationists, land managers, and administrators are faced with a variety of scientific, managerial, administrative, and logistical challenges and complexities. The broad scope of integrated bird conservation requires organizations to work together to conserve birds across taxonomic groups, across landscapes, across geopolitical boundaries, and across social, economic, and political groups. This is no small task. While the benefits of achieving such an integrated approach are numerous and far-reaching, the effort requires considerable coordination and communication among numerous individuals at all levels of organizational structure. Communications tools, such as the internet, are key to enhancing the ability of people to coordinate and exchange information and ideas. A partnership of organizations involved in the North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI) developed an integrated bird conservation web site in the United States that is helping to facilitate coordination and collaboration among users. The site contains linkages to all the major bird conservation planning initiatives, and provides information on progress being made in the field towards integrated bird conservation, information on NABCI as a forum for integrated bird conservation, and a variety of state-of-the-art tools and resources. The web address is http://www.nabci-us.org.
