Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since its inception in 1990, Partners in Flight (PIF) has taken progressive steps to provide useful range-wide landbird conservation vulnerability assessment at both continental and Bird Conservation Region (BCR) scales. This workshop will introduce conservation planners to the PIF species assessment, prioritization, and population estimates databases and demonstrate how these tools can be used to set conservation priorities. at national, regional, and state scales. Planners are often confused by the different types of species assessments available and the prioritization lists they generate. This workshop will elucidate where and why species lists differ and how they are complementary. More importantly, the workshop will present a series of scenarios intended to provide practical insight into how best to implement bird conservation plans in the face of rapidly changing environments in order to address threats that appear to be limiting for individual species and species groups. The major platform that participants will navigate in real time will be the revised Partners in Flight website and its connections to supporting databases and plans. The workshop will focus on the Midwest and link explicitly to activities of the Upper Mississippi and Great Lakes Joint Venture.

Intended Audience: Professional conservation planners and students developing research proposals. Content level will be beginner to intermediate.

Presenters: Tom Will, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
