Thank you for visiting Swallow Conservation. This website reports on decades of effort observing swallows and developing swallow conservation projects. Our work has primarily involved identifying factors interfering with breeding success at nesting sites and devising relatively simple techniques to mitigate these factors.

 

Many of the swallow species that breed in northeastern North America are experiencing population declines, so more recently we have taken what we have learned at our pilot sites and applied it at new sites.

 

In spite of factors other than habitat loss/habitat degradation affecting swallows and other aerial insectivores, we have found that by improving habitat at nesting sites, breeding success is positively affected at these sites.
