waterbird conservation council

A body of individuals representing the many interests and perspectives relating to waterbird conservation has been assembled to guide the Waterbird Conservation for the Americas initiative. The Waterbird Conservation Council (the Council) will be the keeper of the Plan and have responsibility for coordinating, facilitating, and communicating implementation of this and other waterbird plans, updating the plans, and facilitating actions for waterbird conservation throughout the Plan area.
