Water and Birds in the Arid West: Habitats in Decline

Resource Category: 
Wildlife

This Audubon report synthesizes scientific linkages between water and birds in the arid West at a regional scale. It documents the changes that have taken place that threaten the ability of these critical habitats to support healthy populations of birds, focusing on two main geographies: riparian systems of the Colorado River Basin and a network of saline lakes in the Intermountain West. The report complements Audubon's work in the region, by describing key places and species, and establishing relationships between water, habitat, and birds. 

RiversEdge West's

mission is to advance the restoration of riparian lands through collaboration, education, and technical assistance.
