Project Description

Tucson Audubon Society (TAS) leads the Important Bird Area Program (IBA) for the state of Arizona. This program works with Audubon chapters, agency biologists, university scientists, regional non-profits, and citizens to provide a statewide inventory of sites critical to birds of conservation concern, sites where birds congregate in large numbers, or sites with an exceptional habitat type, supporting species restricted to the habitat type. This project will allow TAS to complete the inventory of Arizona IBAs and manage site information through a World Bird Database-Arizona Sites Catalog. The completed inventory will be used to assess priority sites for conservation and conduct species protection analysis based landscape level distribution.
