The Avian Conservation Assessment Database (ACAD) contains the biological data and scores used and generated by the Partners in Flight species assessment process to evaluate the conservation status of over 1,600 species of North American birds. The PIF species assessment process is a peer-reviewedscientific methodology for evaluating the biological conservation status of birds. For complete information on the latest assessment methodology, scores, data sources, etc., download the updated ACAD Handbook.

The ACAD provides two scales of species assessments: global and regional. A map of PIF assessment regions can be viewed by clicking the “Map” button above the regional scores.

In this “Report Card” from the 2016 State of North America’s Birds report, ACAD scores were used to assess the concern level for all native bird species in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico.
