The British Columbia Breeding Bird Atlas (2008-12) is large-scale wildlife monitoring projects that engages over 1000 volunteers to map the distribution and abundance of breeding birds across the province. In 2011, we enter the fourth season of the atlas. So far over 240,000 records have been gathered during more than 30,000 field hours. The large, electronic datasets, freely available from NatureCounts, and maps and summary products available in near real time (, have made the atlas a powerful tool for immediate conservation application, and for measuring  long-term change at local to landscape scales.
