Assumptions

  • Foraging habitat is not a limiting factor to waterfowl populations in this conservation region.
  • The amount and distribution of flooded habitat limits the ability of this region to support waterfowl.
  • Reduced flooded habitat reduces survival rates via a direct relationship with overcrowding and disease.
  • Increasing availability of flooded habitat above an undetermined threshold decreases the scale and frequency of mortality related to disease, thereby increasing annual survival rates of waterfowl using this conservation region.

Strategies

  • Implement private land conservation programs in partnership with state, federal and private partners.
  • Examine the potential to use conservation easements or revolving land acquisition programs to protect and restore habitat in the SGP conservation region.
  • Maintain and expand existing partnerships, while simultaneously exploring and developing additional partnerships that are consistent with the DU mission.
  • Organize KS, OK, and TX into one management unit administered by the Southern Regional Office (SRO).
  • Develop a GIS to assist with planning, monitoring and evaluation of conservation programs in this region.
