Conservation Plans

Working within the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, Partners in Flight, and other collaborations, Klamath Bird Observatory takes a lead role in developing strategic bird and habitat conservation plans and other technical publications. These plans are designed to: (1) stimulate and support a proactive approach to conservation and offer recommendations for planning efforts and habitat management actions, (2) direct cost-effective expenditures of government and non-government organizations, and (3) stimulate monitoring and research to support conservation. The plans’ recommendations serve as the biological foundation for developing and implementing conservation strategies for multiple bird species at multiple geographic scales
