Studying Climate Change and its Impact on Birds in Mexico

March 5th, 2014|Research|

Sonoran Joint Venture staff and other partners recently published an article about the status of climate change research for bird conservation in Mexico in HUITZIL, the Mexican ornithology journal.Global climate change is affecting the world’s biodiversity. In Mexico, several lines of research have been developed to forecast the effects of climate change on bird distributions. [...]

Restoring Coal-mined Lands to Create Habitat for Imperiled Birds

March 4th, 2014|Bird Conservation, Habitat Conservation|

Appalachian Mountain Joint Venture (AMJV) and the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative are partnering to re-establish habitat on previously mined land to improve breeding habitat for declining bird species in the Appalachian Region. This collaboration is replanting trees on disturbed sites in heavily populated bird areas to restore habitats after mining activity. These restoration efforts will benefit [...]

Forest Management Guidelines for Cerulean Warblers

March 4th, 2014|Bird Conservation, Collaboration, Habitat Conservation, News, Planning|

The Appalachian Mountain Joint Venture worked with partners to develop new Forest Management Guidelines for improving the condition of Appalachian hardwood forests for Cerulean Warbler. This species’ population has plummeted by nearly 70% over the last half century, with the loss and degradation of large areas of mature deciduous forest contributing to those declines. The [...]

Atlantic Marine Assessment Program for Protected Species

March 4th, 2014|Research|

This multi-agency (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and U.S. Navy) project gathers baseline information on the distribution and density of marine birds, turtles, and mammals in the marine environment. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Division of Migratory Bird Management is in the fourth year [...]

American Black Duck Energetic Study

March 3rd, 2014|Research|

The Atlantic Coast Joint Venture is working with the Black Duck Joint Venture and Ducks Unlimited to develop energetic supply and demand curves to better define habitat goals for American Black Duck along the Atlantic Coast. They have developed spatially-explicit models of energy supply, currently thought to the major factor limiting wintering Black Duck populations, [...]

Creating and Improving Golden-winged Warbler Habitat in the Appalachian Mountains

March 2nd, 2014|Bird Conservation, Collaboration, Habitat Conservation|

In 2013, a multi-agency team of Appalachian Mountain Joint Venture partners created or improved more than 12,000 acres of young forest habitat within Pennsylvania’s Golden-winged Warbler Focal Conservation Area. While a majority of this area is located on public lands, more than 4,000 acres represent private lands partnerships. The partnership (consisting of the Pennsylvania Game [...]

Conservation Partnerships Craft Community-based, Landscape-Scale Success

February 28th, 2014|Bird Conservation, Habitat Conservation, Species Recovery|

In pre-settlement days, Greater Sage-Grouse numbered in the millions across the American West. Their populations have since plummeted to about 200,000. Fortunately, much of this bird’s ideal habitat is found on private ranchlands and what’s good for rangelands is often good for grouse. Ranchers and wildlife conservationists are sharing a vision for conserving sagebrush habitats [...]
