region 2 joint ventures

Migratory bird habitat joint ventures (JVs) are collaborative, regional partnerships of government agencies, non-profit organizations, corporations, tribes, and individuals that conserve habitat for priority bird populations.  JVs bring these diverse partners together under the guidance of national and international bird conservation plans to design, implement, evaluate, and improve landscape-scale conservation efforts.
