Moving Forward

Authors of the 1986 plan hoped we would reach our goals in 15 years. In the 20 years since NAWMP was signed, much has been accomplished, but much remains to be done. The joint venture model has stimulated some of the most successful partnerships of public and private interests in the history of wildlife management. As a result of this recent assessment, plan partners have better defined the challenges faced by waterfowl and the programs needed to fully meet NAWMP goals. Seeing these challenges through will fall to this and the next generation of waterfowl enthusiasts and beyond.

The authors wish to thank their fellow biologists who took part in the NAWMP evaluation, and especially the joint venture partners that made it possible. The complete NAWMP report can be found at www.fws.gov/birdhabitat/NAWMP/files/DraftContAssess.pdf.
