Dear Friend,

For 75 years, the Blue-eyed Ground-Dove was known only from scattered records and old illustrations. In 2016, researchers in Brazil observed the ground-dove for the first time in decades, launching an international partner effort to save the Critically Endangered species.

Like the Blue-eyed Ground-Dove, over a hundred birds around the world are considered "lost," and American Bird Conservancy is helping to lead efforts to find and protect these species.

Join ABC for its next webinar, "The Search for Lost Birds," to learn more about these fascinating avian mysteries.

We'll discuss our Lost Birds program, past and upcoming expeditions, and the urgent conservation need of finding lost birds.

I'll be moderating the conversation with these wonderful speakers:

  • John Mittermeier, Director of Threatened Species Outreach and head of ABC's Lost Birds initiative
  • Albert Aguiar, Project Coordinator, SAVE Brasil
  • Eliana Fierro-Calderón, International Conservation Project Officer and ABC lead for the Sinu Parakeet expedition

WHAT: The Search for Lost Birds: An ABC Webinar

WHEN: Thursday, February 25th at 4:00pm EST

WHERE: Zoom (link provided upon registration)

I hope you'll be able to make it!
