Partnerships: How the Work Gets Done.
In the United States, Partners in Flight relies on a broad array of partners (listed here) to deliver conservation actions, including federal, state and local government agencies, philanthropic foundations, professional organizations, conservation groups, industry, the academic community, and private individuals.
Many of these partners come together at a regional scale under partnerships called Migratory Bird Joint Ventures (JVs). Widely accepted as the model for collaborative conservation in the 21st century, JVs are a proven mechanism to bridge the gap between science-based planning and on-the-ground implementation.
Through the PIF network, the conservation work of individual entities can be placed into broader context so the entities understand and are credited for their role and remaining efforts can focus on gaps or other issues. They work successfully across geographic, political, and organizational boundaries to integrate bird conservation priorities and efforts shared by multiple levels of governmental and nongovernmental partners.
