Description: One in eight bird species in the world have a real risk of becoming extinct in the next 100 years (Birdlife International 2000). About three-fourths of these species occur in forests and over half of these species suffer from severe fragmentation of their habitats. Tropical deforestation is the major reason for bird decline in the world (Youth 2003). Almost half the forests that once covered the Earth are gone, and deforestation is expanding and accelerating (Abramovitz 1998).
