REPORT

The CEC Secretariat Report on the Death of Migratory Birds at the Silva Reservoir (1994-95) was prepared at the request of non-government organizations from the United States and Mexico.

The report targets the winter 1994-95 mass mortality of migratory waterbirds in the Presa de Silva (Silva Reservoir), located in Guanajuato State.

The report includes recommendations for preventing future mass mortalities and offers lessons for the management of bird habitats in other areas of North America.
