Join KBO’s team and help us address the unprecedented bird crisis — nearly three billion North American birds have been lost since 1970, despite a myriad of conservation efforts. Birds are indicators of healthy places, fresh water, and clean air, and thus their declines are symbolic of the decline in the sustainability of the places we live, so we must act now. If you are interested in science-driven conservation and want to become a contributing member of KBO’s collaborative team of kind, loyal, passionate, supportive, dedicated, and understanding colleagues, we encourage you to apply now.
Klamath Bird Observatory achieves bird conservation in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the ranges of our migratory birds. Emphasizing high-caliber science and the role of birds as indicators, we inform and improve natural resource management. Klamath Bird Observatory’s collaborative conservation planning approach is fueled by: 1) Long-term monitoring that provides information about changes in bird populations; 2) In-depth theoretical research that advances our understanding of distribution and movements; and 3) Applied ecology that addresses natural resource management challenges. Recognizing that conservation occurs across many fronts, we also nurture an environmental ethic through community outreach and education. Through career development, community and professional education, and international capacity building, KBO has a history and commitment to diversifying the fields of conservation science and sustainability education.
