The Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute and the Canada Institute —through the Program for North American Competitiveness— along with the North American Conservation Initiative (NABCI) and The Nature Conservancy, invite you to celebrate the Centennial of the first Migratory Bird Treaty —signed by Great Britain’s King George V on Canada’s behalf and U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, and twenty years later by Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas— by attending a discussion panel: “Understanding Migratory Birds to Advance Competitiveness in the North American Region.”
The “State of North America’s Birds” is a report developed under a NAFTA collaborative framework that provides key findings for governments, private industry, and the public to come together to support migratory birds and their habitats for a sustainable future. Such habitats are key to a wide array of economic activities —from agriculture and farming to new industrial developments— and regional competitiveness.
This unprecedented, continent-wide analysis demonstrates the power of people to understand the value of nature and to make conservation happen for an enduring prosperity.
