AMJV Science Coordinator Dr. Becky Keller is an invited speaker at a half-day symposium on bird conservation on managed forest landscapes at The Wildlife Society (TWS) meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico September 23-27, 2017. Becky will discuss how Migratory Bird Joint Ventures are bridging the gap between high level conservation planning by international bird partnerships like Partners in Flight and local and regional habitat delivery specialists who work with landowners and foresters to improve habitat conditions for birds on public and private forested lands. She will be joined by other presenters from the AMJV partnership, including E.J. Williams of the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) and Dr. Jeff Larkin of ABC and Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
The symposium is presented by the Forestry and Wildlife Working Group of The Wildlife Society, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI). The annual meeting of the Wildlife Society brings together leaders in wildlife science, management, and conservation to address national and international issues that affect current and future status of wildlife.
