Since June 1991

Leadership Statement:

The Center for Conservation Biology is more than a physical facility – we are a community formed around a simple belief. Our shared belief is that the existence and quality of human life throughout the planet is so dependent on the condition of the environment that safeguarding the environment is a priority for all humankind. We are a group of dedicated professional scientists, students, and citizens who focus energy, expertise, and experience on solving pressing environmental problems. We seek real-world solutions that work. Our work has global impact. It drives the conservation community forward on a daily basis. Our research is used to created or improve environmental policy, to inform management decisions, to locate the highest priority lands for protection, and to educate us all about the least destructive path ahead. With a record of bringing more than 500 research projects to successful conclusions, we are proud of how these projects continue to shape our world. The Center for Conservation Biology is an effective organization that turns contributions into real benefits for the public and the environment on which we all depend and enjoy. Although we are a research unit shared by the College of William and Mary and the Virginia Commonwealth University, all of our research and operating costs come from gifts, grant awards, and contracts. Become part of the solution. Contribute to our efforts to help birds and the environment we share. Your support makes our work possible. Sincerely, Bryan D. Watts

Program Description:

Our research has global impact driving the conservation community forward on a daily basis. CCB research is used to create or improve environmental policy, to inform management decisions, to locate the highest priority lands for protection, and to educate us about the least destructive path ahead. In 2012, CCB reached its 20th year and during that short span of time has completed more than 500 research projects on birds of conservation concern and made conservation impacts on 430 bird species in 25 countries. Annually we coordinate conservation efforts for Black Rails, monitor migratory shorebirds in the Mid-Atlantic region, change shorebird hunting policies through Whimbrel tracking research, monitor and managed the federally listed Red-cockaded Woodpecker population in Virginia, monitor the breeding population of Bald Eagles in coastal Virginia, assist Kentucky biologists tracking Bald Eagles, track the endangered Crowned Eagle in Argentina, monitor and manage the Virginia threatened Peregrine Falcon, survey the critically threatened Red Knot, track bald and golden eagles along the Atlantic flyway, and many more projects on species of conservation concern.

Program Description:

CCB has produced 14 master’s degree students with research projects spanning from the impact of human beach use on birds to the effects of salinity on diet and reproductive parameters of Osprey. In 2012, CCB supported a new master’s student studying conflicts within the Bald Eagle population related to interspecific competition. In addition, staff led an undergraduate class to learn bird research techniques in Panama, mentored undergraduate students in Virginia, and conducted 16 public presentations to citizen and academic audiences. Our staff managed the Richmond Eagle Camera project which engaged hundreds of K-12 classrooms in science and avian behavior. The web camera in Richmond received over 1,000,000 page views during the nesting season.

Program Description:

CCB has provided hundreds of pro bono advisory services to government agencies and NGO conservation groups. In 2012, CCB provided information on management of habitat for the federal endangered Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers, collaborated with federal wildlife agencies to incorporate migratory songbirds into habitat planning for the Virginia Eastern Shore, advised state and federal agencies on bald eagle management, identified critical staging areas for migrant shorebirds along the Mid-Atlantic coast, exposed the hunting pressures on migrant shorebirds in the Caribbean, and collaborated with the BBC in a successful public campaign about the consequences of sea-level rise on vulnerable species. In 2012, CCB continued the Virginia Eagle Nest Locator allowing wildlife and environmental planners free online mapping access to eagle nest locations for planning and permit activities. CCB houses the Paul Baker Library which houses and maintains research resources from various sources including original CCB data. The Baker Library currently houses more than 1,000 historic databases on birds of conservation concern. These materials are made available to students, professionals, research organizations, and the interested public to further the avian conservation ideals of CCB.
