Conservation Projects

Conserve the Black Rosy-finch & Its Habitat

Sage Grouse

Sageland Collaborative and their partners are conserving rosy-finch populations throughout Utah and western North America.

Rosy-finches, especially the Black Rosy-finch and Brown-capped Rosy-finch, are high priorities for conservation. These species are threatened by climate change, habitat loss, and a lack of information about their current status, distribution, and movement patterns.

To ensure rosy-finch populations persist into the future, this project combines community science feeder count surveys with RFID tracking to fill critical data gaps, and engages a range of conservation partners to tackle rosy-finch conservation from multiple angles.


Help Protect the Threatened Snowy Plover

Snowy PloverNorth American numbers of the snowy plover have been declining for decades. In order to prevent further decline we need to understand more about the biology and ecology of this bird.

By donating you will be helping to support research and conservation at four snowy plover wintering sites in Mexico, as well as the breeding sites right here at our own Great Salt Lake. The goal of this project is to provide a better understanding of the movements of the snowy plover in order to preserve it in all of the places it calls home.


Save the Endangered Great Green Macaw

Green MacawThis spectacular parrot is identified as an endangered species “most in need of protection,” having declined alarmingly due to poaching and deforestation.

By donating you will be helping to support conservation projects in Costa Rica and Ecuador through the World Parrot Trust. These projects are responsible for raising captive bred macaws for wild release; monitoring and scientific research of released and wild birds; creation of education programs in communities surrounding release sites; and preservation of habitat.
