Subject: [va-bird] VABBA 2 Update
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

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.*
