Hummingbirds get their name from the hum that is produced by their ultra-fast wing beats (up to 80 times per second). These small birds can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and even upside down. But hummingbirds -- and other migratory birds -- can't escape the threat of habitat loss.
Your adoption supports Defenders' work to protect vital forest and wetland habitat for hummingbirds and other migratory birds in the U.S. and abroad, and provides the support we need to educate the public about the impacts of habitat loss.
All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
Named "America's Best Wildlife Charity" by Reader's Digest, Defenders of Wildlife has been a leading innovator in developing the most effective ways to conserve imperiled wildlife and wild lands for over 65 years. Your adoption donation will immediately be put to use where it is most needed to achieve these goals.
