The selection of Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) is a project which BirdLife International (an international organization for the conservation of birds) has been conducting along with the cooperation of affiliated organizations from more than 100 nations worldwide, including the Wild Bird Society of Japan (WBSJ). This project is aimed at selecting ““important natural habitats using birds as indicator species”based on international criteria (IBAs criteria), conserving not only individual habitats but networks of habitats, globally. The project intends to promote the conservation of individual habitats through supporting the activities of local groups and organizations.
