South America's grasslands span approximately 1 million square kilometers across Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. Habitat loss, fragmentation, improper use of agrochemicals, and unsustainable agricultural land management threaten the migratory grassland birds dependent on this ecosystem. BirdLife International, with its partners: Aves Argentinas, Aves Uruguay, Guyra Paraguay, and SAVE Brasil, have worked to conserve grassland birds and their habitats through proven, effective, and scalable conservation solutions. The Grassland Alliance will execute four key strategies to safeguard Southern Cone grasslands critical to the survival of Neotropical migrants and other species: 1. Planning - Develop and begin implementing a Grassland Alliance Bird Conservation Business Plan, in consultation with partners and stakeholders, that provides a road map for future conservation investments. 2. Monitoring - Strengthen and deploy a consistent monitoring and evaluation framework across the Southern Cone Grasslands Alliance network, to advance scientific understanding of the needs of grassland Neotropical migratory bird species, and improve effectiveness of grassland conservation measures. 3. Conserving - Improve management on over 765,000 acres of sustainably managed grasslands through continued work with ranchers to implement Best Management Practices, and bird-friendly beef certification. 4. Raising awareness - Enhance awareness of threats to grassland biodiversity, and possible conservation solutions through effective communication.
