PHAS Board Meeting at Hubbard Lodge
The results are in. Our total species count was 176. This is not as large as some counts in the past but the weather was poor and certainly had an impact. Thank you to all of those who cheered us on and those who made donations towards our efforts. Your contributions are so greatly appreciated.
Protect Our Most Endangered Birds
We urgently request that you join National Audubon and Audubon chapters across the country in supporting two critical bird conservation bills that are currently under consideration in Congress.
An estimated 100,000 albatross die each year after becoming hooked on longline fishing gear and subsequently drowning. they are also threatened by plastic pollution and invasive species such as rats on nesting islands.
As many as 1 billion birds may be killed each year due to building collisions. H.R. 2280 would set vital standards for federal buildings to require bird-friendly design and materials on new or renovated buildings.
We are dedicated to preserving and maintaining those lands and waters that have been entrusted to our stewardship and to inform and educate the public on issues involving birds, wildlife, and the environment.
