About Pacific Birds and Joint Ventures
Pacific Birds has been working to conserve birds in Hawaii for more than a decade, with a focus on conserving endangered waterbirds and their habitats. Quarterly partner meetings, rotating among the main islands, have been a hallmark of the Joint Venture and provide a venue for sharing information about the latest research, conservation strategies and partner projects on the islands.
Starting with the upcoming meeting in June, we are going all-bird and agenda topics include landbirds, seabirds and waterbirds.
Migratory Bird Joint Ventures across the U.S. are celebrating conservation successes! The Joint Venture model for collaborative, on-the-ground habitat conservation was established 30 years ago and has been enormously successful in conserving crucial habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife species.

The Streaked Horned Lark is designated as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. The subspecies has declined substantially in numbers and distribution in the last several decades and its range-wide population is currently less than 2,000 individuals.Learn More
