Future of Waterfowl 2 Workshop
Tue, Sep 26, 2017, 8:00 AM – Thu, Sep 28, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
This is an Invitation Only Event. If you did not receive an invitation by email from the NAWMP Plan Committe, please do not register. Thank you!
Recognition that waterfowl populations, waterfowl habitat, and engagement of conservation supporters are closely linked led to a major revision of the NAWMP in 2012 that stressed finding ways to simultaneously achieve multiple objectives related to population management, habitat conservation, and the needs of users and supporters [https://nawmp.org/sites/default/files/NAWMP-Plan-EN-may23.pdf]
The workshop is a vital follow-up to the 2012 NAWMP revision and will serve as a core component of the 2018 update to the NAWMP. Thus, workshop participants will collaborate to shape the direction and content of the 2018 update.
Specifically, the workshop will be designed to:
(1) review the recommendations of the 2012 NAWMP Action Plan, focusing on progress made to date, obstacles to further progress and solutions to overcome them;
(2) explore the results of targeted surveys of conservation professionals, birdwatchers, waterfowl hunters, and the general public that were designed to inform the 2018 update; and
(3) create stronger connections and collaborations among an even more diverse network of conservation professionals who share ideas and solutions to integration, seeking relevance, and motivating innovative, cost-effective actions to address the varied challenges ahead.
