Joint Ventures in Bird Conservation

The North American Waterfowl Management Plan signed in 1986 by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior and the Canadian Minister of the Environment established a framework for establishing self-directed partnerships between agencies, organizations, corporations, tribes, or individuals. 

These groups – often composed of birding groups and other conservation organizations – formal accepted the responsibility of implementing NAWMP or other national and international bird conservation plans within a specific geographic area or for a specific taxonomic group. These partnerships have received general acceptance in the bird conservation community for such responsibility.
