The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center is dedicated to fostering greater understanding, appreciation, and
protection of the grand phenomenon of bird migration. Founded in 1991, we are located at the Smithsonian
National Zoological Park in Washington, D.C. We seek to clarify the causes for declines in migratory bird
populations before the situation becomes desperate, raise awareness of migratory birds and the need to protect
their habitats through a variety of outreach programs, and protect habitats that are crucial to the annual
pilgrimage of migratory birds in the Western Hemisphere.
