To coincide with Earth Day and the April 26 birthday of John James Audubon, National Audubon released a special series of state WatchLists. An accounting of birds in jeopardy, the WatchLists outline priority species in each of the lower 48 U.S. states. The state lists are accessible at Audubon Online, www.audubon.org. "The release of state WatchLists will help us help birds more effectively," said Audubon's Director of Science, Dr. Frank Gill. "State lists will serve as an early warning system for management agencies, non-government organizations, landowners and the general public. Designed to keep common birds common, state WatchLists chart a course for local conservation efforts, identifying species that will benefit from timely preventive action rather than costly, last-minute crisis management."
