The Cornell Lab of Ornithology advances the conservation of birds and other wildlife through scientific research, technological innovation, and teaching.
We develop new tools and techniques to monitor the world’s rare and elusive species on land, sea, and in the air. We engage citizen-science participants in tracking the numbers and movements of birds across the hemisphere. In the laboratory and in the field, we conduct research and mentor students, training the next generation’s conservation leaders. With international partners, we work to protect the future of wildlife and the habitats they depend on.
Trusted by conservation organizations, government, and industries alike, we work with groups that are often on differing sides of environmental issues, providing the scientific data needed to make informed conservation decisions.
