Pacific Birds is pleased to announce the grantees of the 2021 U.S. Partnership Grants Program. This round of granting includes eleven projects led by partners to advance the pace and scale of bird habitat conservation within the Pacific Region, from the Pacific Islands and coast to the Cascade’s oaks.
Pacific Birds is a cooperative regional partnership with a mission of creating the ideal environment for bird habitat conservation. This work can only be accomplished at a relevant scale when we work together towards common conservation goals.
The partners and projects supported in the 2021 grant cycle advance conservation efforts within the three conservation priorities identified by the Pacific Birds International Management Board: Hawaiʻi Wetlands, Coastal Wetlands, and Oak and Prairie.
Reflective of the broad spectrum of conservation actions needed to sustain healthy bird populations, this year’s projects are diverse. They include habitat protection in the coastal wetlands of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, the restoration of lako pono (social-ecological abundance) on Oʻahu, increasing capacity for prescribed fire in ways aligned with community priorities in the Willamette Valley, and more. You can see the complete list of awarded projects below and view summaries on our Partnership Grants page.
We look forward to supporting the successful outcomes of these projects and regret that we are unable to fund all proposals received.
