Wild Bird Index
The Wild Bird Index (WBI) measures average population trends of a suite of representative wild birds, as an indicator of the general health of the wider environment. The WBI is an easy-to-understand indicator that can be calculated for different geographic areas and habitats. This means that different Wild Bird Indices (WBIs) can be produced for areas such as farmland and woodland, or inside and outside protected areas if suitable data is available. It is useful for analysis, interpretation of environmental issues and communication.
