The Important Bird Areas Program (IBA) is a global effort to identify and conserve areas that are vital to birds and other biodiversity. The Michigan Important Bird Areas Program officially began in March 2006 by a partnership of Audubon, Detroit Audubon, Kalamazoo Nature Center, and Michigan Audubon. As of 2012, 102 IBAs have been identified. Nine of these are recognized as globally significant. A complete explanation of how these sites were identified and the Important Bird Areas process in Michigan is available here.

Please see list of Michigan Important Bird Areas!
