Conservation Planning - MAV Waterfowl

The Mississippi Alluvial Valley (MAV) is an ecologically rich wetland ecosystem, encompassing 25 million acres that can winter up to 40% of waterfowl in the Mississippi Flyway.  To support the mission of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP), the Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture uses a bioenergetic model to derive goals for waterfowl conservation.  The results of the bioenergetic model and other documents are contained here.
