A global initiative of BirdLife International, implemented by Audubon and local partners in the United States, the Important Bird Areas Program (IBA) is an effort to identify and conserve areas that are vital to breeding, migrating, and wintering birds. Because of the vast, intact habitats in Alaska, there are more globally significant IBAs in this state than any other in the U.S.
Stuck at home? No problem. See some of the beautiful birds that visit Alaska each year in this slide show!
