eBird data play an increasingly important and diverse role in the conservation domain. Conservation actions using eBird data range from research and monitoring to conservation planning, including tangible conservation actions such as site and habitat management, species population assessment and management, habitat protection, and informing of law and policy (Sullivan et al. 2017). Open access to eBird data is critical for these conservation actions and we are committed to ensuring that your data will be put to the best use possible for research, conservation, and education.
Tracking data use and tangible conservation actions is important for eBird. If you have used eBird data as a core component of an analysis or as a core dataset upon which conservation actions were taken, please let us know about it by email, using the subject title ‘eBird Data Use.’
