Developed annually, this plan establishes the priorities and activities for the IWJV for the current federal fiscal year (Oct 1 – Sept 30). It enables the Management Board to efficiently direct the IWJV’s time, resources, and energy toward the highest-priority efforts. This process is extremely important because we support habitat conservation across 486 million acres of the West through relationships with an increasingly diverse and growing cast of partners. This operational plan brings focus by directing attention to efforts that help us realize the highest possible return on investment.
Despite the many ongoing changes in and around our conservation world, our informal motto remains constant: A partnership is stronger than the sum of its parts. We are fortunate to work with so many passionate conservation professionals and together we make an incredible impact for today and tomorrow. This document is a tool to help bring more people into the fold of collaborative conservation. Please access and share it to continue to fulfill this motto. In the spirit of conservation, limited hard copies are being produced.
