American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is a 501(c)(3), not-for profit organization whose mission is to conserve native birds and their habitats throughout the Americas.
We envision an Americas-wide landscape where diverse interests collaborate to ensure that native bird species and their habitats are protected, where their protection is valued by society, and they are routinely considered in all land-use and policy decision-making.
ABC is the only U.S.-based group with a major focus on bird habitat conservation throughout the entire Americas. ABC acts across the full spectrum of threats to birds to safeguard the rarest bird species, restore habitats, and reduce threats, unifying and strengthening the bird conservation movement.

About ABC’s Collisions Program.
Hundreds of millions of birds die each year in collisions with manmade structures, including glass windows and buildings, communication towers, and wind turbines.
Thanks to the generous support of the Leon Levy Foundation, American Bird Conservancy continues to be a leading force in ongoing efforts to protect birds from collisions, working with industry representatives, the federal government, and other conservation groups to find solutions to this growing problem.
ABC’s Collisions Program addresses the collision threat to birds through multiple strategies, including research to identify effective collision deterrents, education of architectural professionals through courses that qualify for continuing education credit, development and broad distribution of information resources, helping manufacturers create bird-friendly products, and actively promoting bird-friendly legislation.
