The UMGL JV includes four staff members who help generate and coordinate the partnership’s goals and efforts through grants and projects, conservation planning, and technical evaluation.
Overall direction of the UMGL JV is determined by the Management Board, which is made up of representatives from state, federal, and non-government organizations with a common interest in achieving objectives of continental bird plans such as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan. The Board functions as an oversight, advisory, and information-sharing body, and provides guidance to ensure the JV is reaching its bird conservation habitat goals.
The UMGL JV Science Team is comprised of experts in bird and systems ecology, species habitat conservation, and biological modeling. This group of scientists, employed by government agencies, universities, and non-governmental organizations within the JV region, was responsible for the development of the JV Implementation Plan and associated Bird-group Strategies. The JV Science Team is also responsible for keeping up-to-date on the latest in bird research and monitoring efforts in the region, and for integrating this information into JV priorities.
