Help Us Capture Conservation Acres
Pacific Birds has been reporting annual habitat accomplishments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since our inception in 1991. Part of our job is to help partners find and secure project funding, promote collaboration, and then show that conservation dollars work!
We recognize that our conservation partners usually need to report their projects back to a variety of funders, so we now work with some agencies directly to capture projects. The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board and the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office, both of which are involved with multiple federal and state funding programs, provide us with cumulative annual habitat accomplishments.
We are also starting to work with land trust associations to advertise our annual call for accomplishments, such as the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts and the Washington Association of Land Trusts. This helps us reach more groups and allows us to better understand the private and non-government funding sources and their cumulative contributions to conservation.
If you have a project you would like to report on that isn't covered by the means above, please go directly to the easy, online form. If it is a project that you want to show off more than usual, we are glad to highlight it on our website and in our newsletter. We need any submitted forms back by August 31st.
Thank you for your conservation work!
