By maintaining operational efficiency and investing in innovative conservation strategies, we are able to direct an incredible 91 percent of total spending directly to conservation and advocacy activities. Urban Bird’s programmatic investments spanning hands-on conservation projects, research, advocacy, education and outreach are designed to address the prevalent, interconnected conservation and community health issues that disconnect people from nature and are responsible for reducing bird populations in suburban and urban environments. Thank you for your support and encouragement in this great effort to preserve nature, birds and sustainable living in our own backyards.
91% of spending is directed to conservation activities – your donations at work!
