Plans, Implementation and Resources
National Waterbird Reports. Summaries of the state of knowledge relevant to waterbird conservation in Central America, the Caribbean, and South America (e.g., species occurrence, status, habitats and protected areas, threats, conservation projects, legislation) are available thanks to a multi-year Neotropical Waterbird Conservation project coordinated by BirdLife International on behalf of the Waterbird Conservation Council and with funding from the U.S. Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act and numerous partners.
Some key findings from the synthesis of South American national reports (still in preparation):
417 species of waterbird have been recorded in South America
