Our Partnership:

A Model for Success



Texas and Oklahoma have a diverse array of existing avian-related conservation initiatives.  However, to landscape-scale conservation challenges, these efforts need to be tied together with a unifying vision, common goals, and a collective approach to landscape planning and delivery of on-the-ground conservation.  The partner-based format of Joint Ventures is ideally suited to developing strategies for impacting avian species at a regional level and leveraging partner dollars to make it happen.
