2022 has been a great year for the NY Breeding Bird Atlas! Over 3,100 people have contributed breeding observations of 224 species (and counting!) confirmed breeding statewide. Data collection is going really well and we are pleased and grateful that New York birders have remained so enthusiastic about this project.
As a past supporter of Sponsor-a-Species, we know you understand how important the Atlas data are to the protection of birds and their habitats.
We want to let you know that we will soon be launching our annual Sponsor-a-Species campaign. Last year you donated partial sponsorship for your favorite birds, and as a past contributor, we want to give you the chance to renew your support for another year.
If you’ve forgotten how you helped in the past, we’ve listed your giving history below:
The success of the Atlas depends on birders like you. Sponsor-a-Species has raised $40,600 so far and the money was crucial to hiring assistants for the Atlas this past summer. Read more about how your donation will be used here.
We know that not everyone is able to help financially, but if you can, we hope you will take this opportunity to donate again.
Thank you for all you do for the Atlas,
NY Breeding Bird Atlas Team
