    understanding our name...

    Kirtlandii is the species name of the Kirtland’s Warbler (Setophaga Kirtlandii). Through most of the 1970s and 1980s the Kirtland’s Warbler population was under 500, a dire enough number to get it listed under the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Once recognized, conservationists fought hard to revive the species, focusing on combating its two biggest threats: a lack of suitable breeding habitat and nest parasitism by the Brown-Headed Cowbird.

    Their heroic work has paid off… the most estimates put the population at 4,500 and that number appears to be growing each year! The IUCN Red List downgraded the species from Vulnerable to Extinction to Near Threatened in 2005. And in 2018 a proposal was submitted to remove the species from the Endangered List, citing successful recovery efforts. While the recovery efforts and list downgrades are encouraging, it is important to note that the Kirtland’s Warbler received the highest possible Continental Concern Score from The Partner’s in Flight Organization in 2016. In addition, the US Fish & Wildlife Service notes that grant money dedicated to Kirtland’s Warbler habitat management has decreased in recent years.

    The Kirtlandii name was chosen because it celebrates an incredible conservation story, that recognizes the work of the conservationists that saved the species, while also serving as a reminder that the work to conserve habitat and sustain threatened species is never complete.

    The Kirtlandii logo depicts two singing Kirtland’s Warbler perched atop a Jack Pine branch. Since Kirtland’s Warbler only breed in young Jack Pine forests, the logo symbolizes the dependent relationship between wildlife and nature and represents Kirtlandii’s commitment to the conservation of wildlife species and their habitats.
