Conserving avian biodiversity in urban environments is contingent on the collective decisions made by homeowners, developers, planners, and policymakers. Often, decisions made by developers, planners, and policymakers have the broadest impact on the land and set the stage for how municipalities conserve avian habitat for decades into the future. This chapter outlines strategies for biologists to engage developers, planners, and policymakers in adopting conservation methodologies that would promote avian diversity. I describe how a University of Florida academic group, the Program for Resource Efficient Communities (PREC), has engaged the design-build community to create more resource-efficient, bird-friendly, residential neighborhoods. The lessons learned from PREC activities could help biologists to engage any community to adopt practices that will conserve urban avian diversity.
