Our Approach to Conservation

The NGPJV works with an array of partners to develop and implement habitat conservation that is both strategic and effective.  We believe that habitat conservation must move forward rapidly while the science foundation for bird conservation is strengthened through biological planning, conservation design, monitoring and evaluation, and adaptive management. We also believe in a ‘working landscapes” approach that balances landowners’ needs with conservation potential, one that results in win-win results for both birds and humans.

In this section, we introduce priority bird species of the Northern Great Plains and the main habitats on which we focus.
