Threatened rainforest habitats
Tracts of forest in the Caribbean and Central America are being cut down at a rate of 1 to 3.5 percent a year. US ecologist John Terborgh estimates that as many as half of all birds that winter south of the United States go to just five countries - Mexico, the Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic - where most of the mature forests are now cleared to make way for farms and pastures.
