East Gulf Coastal Plain Joint Venture Conservation Planning
East Gulf Coastal Plain Joint Venture Implementation Plan lays out how to achieve the long‐term objective of the partnership, which is to ensure the sustainability of priority bird populations, and the habitats and ecological communities of which they are an integral part.
Bird Conservation Initiative Plans
Five major bird initiatives guide the Joint Ventures in helping to achieve bird conservation at continental scales by providing the foundation for bird conservation across North America:
Improve monitoring and inventory, research, management, and educational programs concerning landbirds (including songbirds) of the U.S. and their habitats.

National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative (NBCI), 2002
This first-ever large-scale, coordinated and collaborative plan was created by the Southeast Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies to reverse the serious decline of bobwhite populations across most of its range. The goal is to restore northern bobwhite populations rangewide (across the Southeastern U.S.) to an average density equivalent to that which existed in 1980.
Restore habitat sufficient to support waterfowl at desired levels throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. The original plan was updated in 1994, 1998 and 2004.

Sustain or restore the distribution, diversity, and abundance of waterbirds (not already covered by the waterfowl and shorebird conservation plans) and their habitats throughout the United States, Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
