Partners in Flight Strategic Action Plan Version 1.2
In this Strategic Action Plan, we have identified broad goals and objectives that capture the huge array of actions necessary to achieve landbird conservation. But we have also focused our thinking much more sharply by identifying specific tasks to be achieved within the next three years. Thus, this also could be considered a work plan. Our intent is to put less time into comprehensive long-term objectives that may or may not have any realistic chance of achievement and instead focus on smaller pieces that are realistically achievable.
The focus of PIF remains on landbirds (Rich et al. 2004, Berlanga et al. 2010). But increasingly in an all-bird and even all-taxa conservation context—“Birds are still just like ducks”—waterfowl and wetland conservation in North America continues to provide a successful model. PIF needs to increase its resources and expand its partnerships for all habitats and landscapes.
