IBA MINI CONSERVATION PLANS

FOR LAND MANAGERS and OWNERS

Our goal is to provide an easy-to-use resource that will help you consider birds when making land management decisions within Audubon Important Bird Areas in Arizona. We designed these Mini Conservation Plans for agency biologists, land managers, and others who deal with everyday decisions that affect birds and their habitats, but who may or may not be bird experts. Each plan summarizes key bird conservation details as well as conservation challenges. The plans include both priority species for conservation, as well as birds that are good indicators of habitat health.

We hope these plans help guide your work and decision-making processes. If you have questions or want to discuss management options, please contact Arizona Important Bird Area Coordinators Tice Supplee or Jennie MacFarland should you want more information or to schedule a plan review/update.

MADE POSSIBLE BY:

These IBA conservation plans were developed in cooperation with the Arizona IBA Science Committee with assistance from Sonoran Joint Venture and Arizona Game and Fish Department biologists. Plans are updated based on input from land managers and partners knowledgeable about the Important Bird Area.
