The people of the Intermountain
West are our greatest asset.
We believe in forging productive, lasting relationships built on trust and respect with a diversity of partners, fostering innovations in our work, and producing tangible, on-the-ground results for habitat conservation across private and public lands in the West.
Science from the IWJV and partners is essential to the conservation of wetlands and sagebrush rangelands across the Intermountain West. However, there is often a gap between the production of that science and putting the information to work on the ground. The IWJV addresses this challenge by helping partners assess science and capacity needs in order to develop new tools and communication strategies to ensure science is translated into action.
The IWJV brings diverse partners together to build a shared vision for conservation and create win-win solutions for wildlife, agriculture, and industry.
Our State Conservation Partners are hubs for this model.
We focus on coordinating and implementing bird habitat conservation that benefits a wide range of other wildlife and people. Our conservation delivery efforts broker strong partnerships between private landowners, communities, states, federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, corporations, and tribes to achieve targeted, science-based habitat conservation.
The IWJV conserves and enhances bird habitats at meaningful scales through capacity building, science, communications, and strategic partnerships.
We help create forums to bring partners together and build a shared vision for conservation. Our partners collaborate to achieve balance between diverse human interests and healthy habitat for wildlife.
