Partners in Flight

Partners in Flight (PIF) took off 1990 in response to growing concerns about declines in the populations of many land bird species. PIF is a cooperative effort involving partnerships among federal, state and local government agencies, philanthropic foundations, professional organizations, conservation groups, industry, the academic community, and private individuals. The central premise of the program has been that public and private organizations must combine, coordinate, and increase their resources in order to achieve success in conserving the western hemisphere’s bird populations.

The Partners in Flight North American Landbird Conservation Plan provides a continental synthesis of priorities and objectives to guide landbird conservation actions at national and international scales. In addition, state and regional plans identify priority bird populations and habitats and describe conservation issues and recommendations for smaller geographic units within the United States. PIF also provides links to information about best management practices by ecosystem type.
