> New York, NY, February 28, 2002 - The twice-yearly spectacle of America's
> shorebird migration is a hemisphere-wide event that ranks among nature's
> most stirring spectacles.  But, as the wetlands these birds need
> disappear, the future of America's shorebirds is in grave doubt.  The
> March edition of Audubon magazine features a special report on these
> long-distance fliers, Living on the Edge, by Don Stap with illustrations
> by renowned naturalist and artist David Allen Sibley, who has just joined
> Audubon as Contributing Editor (see accompanying release) and additional
> text by Audubon Field Editor Kenn Kaufman.  Stap's report asks the
> question "How do we reclaim and restore the wetlands these unique birds
> need in order to survive?"
> 
> Going the Extra Yard - There's a movement afoot - and underfoot - that may
> mean healthier yards and longer, better lives for you and your family, and
> wildlife.  Chuck the Chemicals!  Trash your sprinkler!  Entertain some
> birds!  Audubon introduces readers to three habitat heroes who prove that
> conservation can be easy, it can take place in your home backyard, and can
> be far less difficult and expensive than traditional lawn care practices.

> The Treasure of Iwokrama - It's rugged and remote; its rainforest and
> raging rivers are home to jaguars and harpy eagles.  Writer Scott
> Weidensaul and photographer Daniel Borris transport readers to a little
> known corner of Guyana, where a unique partnership between scientists and
> a local Indian tribe is safeguarding a forest's future.
> 
> Incite - Wanted: More Hunters - America's 33-million White-tailed Deer are
> at the heart of a conservation catastrophe.  They've caused millions of
> dollars worth of damage to our trees, shrubs and crops, but it is the
> damage they've caused to natural ecosystems that may be the hardest to
> quantify, and to restore.  As Audubon's Ted Williams reports:
> unfortunately, there is only one solution.
> 
> Photo Essay - Springing to Life - This year's first buds bring relief from
> the long, grey of winter.  However, a bud is more than a thing of beauty;
> it's a complex survival mechanism.  Photographer James Balog scales the
> heights to record this season al rite in an all-new way.  Text by Edward
