As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

CONSERVATION: Groups Join Forces To Focus On Bird Habitats

THE Bahamas National Trust and the National Audubon Society are joining forces to focus on improving bird habitats.

#The trust recently hosted a reception, at which both groups signed a memorandum of understanding to foramlise the collaboration.

#The goal is to improved the conservation of bird habitats and key species within the national park system and across The Bahamas.

#Audubon is a non-profit organisation dedicated to environmental conservation with a special focus on birds.

#“Audubon has been dedicated to conservation effort in the Bahamas for more than a century,” said David Yarnold, president and CEO of Audubon.

#“Audubon has helped to establish the Wild Bird Protection Act, protected the dwindling flamingo population in the 1950s - which saved flamingos from near extinction, provided scientific guidance for the establishment of the first ever land and sea park in the Exumas and provided the science for white-crowned pigeons that established hunting bag limits.”
