Bird Habitat Joint Ventures are self-directed partnerships established under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to implement the conservation goals of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan. Within joint ventures, local partners collectively provide the expertise and programs to identify and implement strategic conservation programs for birds. Pacific Birds brings people together to find common ground for conservation, to advance long-term conservation planning and on-the-ground project delivery, and to connect flyway-wide conservation goals to local projects. Pacific Birds staff assist partners with facilitating strategic efforts as well as planning, communication and obtaining funding for conservation projects.
