Conservation and Activism
 
As part of our mission to preserve and protect wildlife and natural ecosystems, EMAS is closely involved with the Audubon Important Bird Areas (IBA) program. Three local IBAs are a focus of our organization's efforts: the Plott/Great Balsam Mountains, the Black and Great Craggy Mountains, and Bull Creek. Information about these IBAs is located on Audubon NC's IBA website. Bird counts and other research are ongoing. Please email EMAS if you have any questions about our work in these IBAs.


 
One of the greatest threats to birds is collisions with windows on houses and office buildings. The American Bird Conservancy provides very useful information on preventing window strikes. Further information can be found in ABC's Birds and Collisions resource.
