Our Mission

MRBO’s Mission

To contribute to the conservation of Missouri’s migratory and resident birds through scientific research, community outreach, and education. To gather information about avian communities and habitat use that will assist state, federal, and private natural resource managers in their efforts to implement conservation programs. To provide opportunities for Missouri students to learn about species and habitat conservation.

How we accomplish this…

Education and outreach is an integral component of our work in both formal and informal applied settings. Each year we conduct approximately 70 educational events. We also conducted bird monitoring on thousands of acres within Missouri’s most imperiled habitats. This information is communicated to land managers and landowners so that we all further understand specific effects of stewardship on birds.
