How do we close the gap between knowing and doing? Dayer proposes that there is an "implementation crisis" because what science has learned about threats to birds is not being translated into steps that could halt species declines. What's needed, Dayer argues, is a new focus on people. She will introduce this new way of thinking about bird conservation and provide examples nationally and locally of where people are effectively engaging in bird and habitat conservation.
