Strategic Goals

The IWJV is committed to conserving habitats in the Intermountain West that are capable of sustaining bird populations at desired levels.

To achieve this goal, we will employ the following strategies:

  1. Broaden and strengthen public-private partnerships for bird habitat conservation in the Intermountain West.
  2. Increase funding for federal and state funding programs essential to bird habitat conservation in the Intermountain West.
  3. Provide funding, foster leverage opportunities, and enhance partner access to federal, state and private funding programs essential to bird habitat conservation in the Intermountain West.
  4. Develop a strong science foundation, linking continental, regional, and local population goals and habitat objectives, to inform and empower strategic habitat conservation in the Intermountain West.
  5. Employ strategic communications to communicate effectively with target audiences that are necessary to engage for bird conservation.
  6. Conduct science based monitoring and evaluation of conservation outcomes capable of measuring their contribution to stated bird population goals and/or habitat objectives.
