Migrating birds are what is known as an 'indicator species' — the pressures and threats they are experiencing foretell other problems within the ecosystem and provide an opportunity to mitigate potential risks. Understanding and tracking bird migration is crucial for conserving habitats that are essential to species survival.

Over the past 20 years, ConocoPhillips has taken an increasingly active role in helping to preserve and protect avian species and habitats. The company works with strategic conservation partners to focus on common conservation goals and improve data sharing. Without understanding migratory connectivity, conservation investments can often be ineffective because they are implemented at the wrong place or time, or for the wrong purpose.

The company supports several migratory bird joint venture partnerships and partners with institutions that help protect and study species and critical habitats essential for their survival.
