IAP Summer 2011 Update

As spring continues its journey north, bringing warmth and color back to our fields and forests, it is also the time of year that we celebrate the return of our spring migrants from their wintering grounds in Latin America and the Caribbean. Whether the bird is a brightly colored Prothonotary Warbler returning from the mangrove forests of Panama, or an endangered Piping Plover landing on our sandy shores from the beaches of the Bahamas, or a Wood Thrush flying back from the mountains of Belize, they all depend upon healthy habitat unique to their species' needs. With this in mind, I would like to personally update you on the exciting projects Audubon's International Alliances Program (IAP) has accomplished over the last six months with your generous support.
