Important Bird Areas (IBAs)

Official WHO Definition

Other Definitions

IBAs are key sites for conservation – small enough to be conserved in their entirety and often already part of a protected-area network. They do one (or more) of three things:
Hold significant numbers of one or more globally threatened species
Are one of a set of sites that together hold a suite of restricted-range species or biome-restricted species
Have exceptionally large numbers of migratory or congregatory species

The selection of Important Bird Areas (IBAs) has been a particularly effective way of identifying conservation priorities.
