2016 Partners in Flight Landbird Conservation Plan

The updated Landbird Conservation Plan from Partners in Flight has just been released.

As with previous iterations, the emphasis is on applying objective criteria to determine those species in most need of conservation, delineating the habitats within ecoregions important for those species, and building partnerships to actually protect and manage that habitat on the ground.

In just one of many great examples, the Grassland Restoration Incentive Program (GRIP) has enrolled at least 75 projects in the Oaks and Prairies Joint Venture since 2013, leading to better management for birds and other native wildlife on 45,000 acres in the Southern Plains.

Read about GRIP and other North American success stories – in addition to the more sobering messages about how far we still have to go – in the 2016 Landbird Conservation Plan.
