Who We Are

A North American Initiative

Considered one of the most successful conservation initiatives in the world, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) was established to protect wetland habitat and associated wildlife species across the North American landscape.

The Alberta Connection

Home to some of the most productive waterfowl habitat in North America, Alberta’s wetland resources are a valuable commodity to be preserved and protected. Since 1986, the Alberta North American Waterfowl Management Plan Partnership (Alberta NAWMP) has been tasked with conserving Alberta’s wetlands and associated upland habitat to help achieve the goals of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan Agreement.

Bringing it to Life

Alberta NAWMP comes to life through a collaboration of federal, provincial and municipal governments, non-governmental organizations, private companies and many individuals; all working towards achieving better wetland habitat for the benefit of waterfowl, wildlife and people. Alberta NAWMP’s core partners include:

These partners and their coordinated conservation activities are essential to helping AB NAWMP achieve the continental North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) goal of restoring waterfowl populations to the average levels of the 1970s. Learn more about NAWMP.

Commitment Fosters Success

The enduring success of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan in Alberta can be directly attributed to the commitment and support of the Alberta NAWMP partner organizations and their grassroots approach. Connected through a clear vision, supported by a flexible framework and committed to working in an interdependent environment, for more than 25 years the Alberta NAWMP partnership has demonstrated unprecedented cooperation and sharing of knowledge, resources and programs, provided insight for stewardship practitioners and demonstrated the durable and remarkable potential which exists through a collaborative approach.

The collective effort of all NAWMP partners can achieve more than the individual agencies acting alone.
