The Center for Conservation Biology maintains a decades-long commitment to the monitoring and management of avian species that are either formally listed as threatened or endangered or are in great need of conservation action.  In addition to population monitoring, the Center conducts basic research to better understand the root causes of population declines, as well as, research on techniques that will lead to more effective management.  Center staff serve as principal advisors to federal and state agencies responsible for the management and recovery of these species.
