Migratory Bird Joint Ventures: 1987-2012

Over the last 25 years, Migratory Bird Joint Ventures have become widely accepted as the model for cooperative conservation.

Since the North American Waterfowl Management Plan called for their establishement in 1986, Migratory Bird Joint Ventures have grown to cover nearly all of the U.S. and Canada, and much of Mexico. Joint Venture staff have worked directly with over 5,700 non-governmental organizations; local, state, and federal agencies; private landowners; tribes; businesses; universities; and other partners. This record of success has positioned Joint Ventures as the national model for partnership-driven conservation. Over the course of their history, Joint Venture partnerships have leveraged every dollar of Congressional funds 35:1, helping to conserve 18.5 million acres of critical habitat.
