The Second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2) is wrapping up its final year of field data collection. More than 1,400 volunteers and scientists, including many of you, have reported on the breeding activity of over 200 bird species throughout Virginia! The Atlas project will soon enter its next phase: data analysis and compilation into readily usable information. Although its final form is still being determined, the VABBA2 will provide accessible science-based information on avian population and habitat distributions, species maps and accounts, and a range of other topics. This data will support positive environmental regulation and species conservation, rural land preservation, public lands acquisition and management, climate change actions, and much more.
To make this possible, we need your help! *Your gift to the VABBA2 will help support completion of this essential body of scientific knowledge whose time has come.* Please donate at www.virginiabirds.org. Thank you!
*The VABBA2 is a project of the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources, Virginia Tech, and the Virginia Society of Ornithology.* *The VSO is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law*.
