Migratory Bird Conservation Champions
Supporting conservation across North America
Over their long history, the North American Migratory Bird Joint Ventures have worked with over 5,700 non-governmental organizations; local, state, and federal agencies and governments; private landowners; tribes; corporations; universities; and other partners.
These collaborations have translated into an array of success stories, including the conservation of millions of acres of important habitat for birds and other wildlife, leveraging millions of matching and in-kind dollars; innovative partnerships to protect at-risk species, strategic communications and outreach to deliver important messages to target audiences, cutting edge scientific research to fill gaps in knowledge, and science-based planning to guide resource management actions.
The North American Migratory Bird Joint Venture Conservation Champion Award is given to partners and partnerships that have demonstrated a long-term commitment and dedication to the important work of the Joint Ventures.
