DU Projects: Pacific Flyway

William Beardsley

The Pacific Flyway stretches 4,000 miles north-to-south and 1,000 miles east-to-west. From the Arctic to the west coast of Mexico and the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, this flyway encompasses the most varied waterfowl habitats in North America.

The westernmost flyway includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington; portions of Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, and Wyoming west of the Continental Divide; and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta; and the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

DU's top conservation priority areas in this flyway include the Central Valley and Pacific coast of California, the Pacific Northwest, and the western boreal forest.

DU and its partners have conserved more than 984,000 acres of waterfowl habitat in the U.S. portion of the Pacific Flyway alone.
