Biologists are working to protect Golden-winged Warblers at home by working with private landowners and public land managers to implement best management practices outlined specifically for this species. We work with international partners to study the warbler’s habits in its Central and Southern American wintering range. By connecting these conservation dots, we are better able to understand and mitigate population declines.
