Revised North American Waterfowl Management Plan presents bold vision for the future

September 26, 2012 | Posted by AB NAWMP

Over its first 25 years, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) has become a model for international wildlife conservation.

Building on that remarkable legacy of coordinated public/private strategies for managing waterfowl, Canada, the United States and Mexico have embarked on an ambitious journey to achieve a new conservation vision. The revised “2012 North American Waterfowl Management Plan – People Conserving Waterfowl and Wetlands” presents a bold, renewed vision for the future.

The Plan remains committed to conserving continental waterfowl populations and habitat. But this renewed Plan focuses on addressing those new challenges that create competition for land, water and funding, on expanding an engaged community of users and supporters, and responding to the changing needs of evolving societies while respecting and recommitting to the rich traditions that have existed since before the founding of these nations.
