Mission & Vision
The mission of the Prairie Pothole Joint Venture is to implement conservation programs that sustain populations of waterfowl, shorebirds, other waterbirds and prairie landbirds at objective levels through targeted wetland and grassland protection, restoration and enhancement programs. These activities are based on science and implemented in collaboration with multiple stakeholders.

The following principles guide actions taken in support of the PPJV mission:
- Diverse partnerships are the primary vehicle for accomplishing PPJV goals
- Long-term protection, restoration and management of wetland and grassland habitats requires conservation, economic and social policies and programs that sustain the ecological health of Prairie Pothole Region
- Biologically-based planning is refined through science-based research and evaluation
