2005 Implementation Plan
The 2005 plan involved stepping down the objectives of the four international “species groups” plans for waterfowl, shorebirds, waterbirds, and landbirds as they apply to the PPJV. Population and habitat trends, coupled with knowledge of how species respond to landscape change, were used to build a biological foundation and set quantifiable goals. Focal species were selected to represent groups of birds of special interest, and associated threats and limiting factors identified.
Conservation actions and treatments were proposed, and models developed that depict where to implement particular conservation actions. After each species working group set spatial and programmatic priorities, an integrated landscape design was developed by overlaying priority habitats for focal species from each bird group. Conservation actions were partitioned into protection, restoration, or enhancement projects for on-the-ground delivery. Monitoring and evaluation techniques were established to measure performance and provide feedback to improve future management performance.
There is now a 2017 update of the Implementation Plan.
