Why do birds matter?
Birds have always captured people’s imagination and envy – they are beautiful, they sing, they can fly and we can’t. Because there are more than 10,000 species found in most habitats all over the globe, they have long been recognized as indicators of environmental change, the malign effects of pollution and habitat degradation, or used to assess the beneficial effectiveness of conservation and habitat restoration. They are mobile and react quickly to ecological change – they can vote with their wings – and people care!
