AMJV Supporting Update of Partners in Flight Plan

In 2004, Partners in Flight produced the North American Landbird Conservation Plan, providing a continental synthesis of the priorities and tasks to guide landbird conservation to protect remaining populations and reverse long-term population declines. In 2015, natural resource and conservation partners – including the AMJV – are coming together to update this landmark plan, which will include revisions to both the methodology and resulting vulnerability scores of Species Assessment as well as publication of new and innovative products.

Since the majority of the AMJV’s priority species are landbirds, the revision of this Plan will be a cornerstone to the ongoing AMJV prioritization process and will create a shared vision for landbird conservation across North America. Joint Ventures and Watchlist Species will feature heavily in this plan revision.
