Waterfowl Working Group:
Waterfowl Working Group
The LMVJV Waterfowl Working Group serves as the technical forum for coordination and communication among Joint Venture partners in matters pertaining to implementing the goals and objectives of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP). The Working Group ensures that the conservation actions of Joint Venture partners are supported by program and agency-specific population-based habitat objectives and that population and habitat monitoring programs are supporting the progressive refinement of waterfowl conservation goals and objectives.
The Working Group is empowered to:
Refine and revise the waterfowl habitat objectives of the LMVJV at such times and in such manner as the Working Group deems new data and information warrant such refinement.
Coordinate the development and implementation of habitat and population monitoring programs.
Review and assess the efficiency and effectiveness of waterfowl management programs and projects.
Identify research issue and needs pertinent to NAWMP implementation and coordinate and facilitate the development and implementation of research projects.
Represent the LMV Joint Venture before the National Science Support Team (NSST) of the NAWMP Committee, Flyway Technical Councils, and other such bodies on any and all technical matters pertaining to the LMV Joint Venture’s implementation of the NAWMP.
Represent the LMV Joint Venture in communication and outreach to the public on the technical and scientific issues associated with waterfowl conservation and management.
Organize such ad hoc or standing sub-committees or working groups as deemed necessary in accomplishing its purpose.
