Publications
The information and expertise amassed through the State of the World’s Birds project has been used to develop a wide range of materials, including booklets, brochures and foldout maps. These not only promote and explain BirdLife’s work, but also help support its involvement at key events such as international environmental negotiations. Below are some of the main recent publications.
