FOR LAND MANAGERS and OWNERS
These Mini Conservation plans for Arizona’s Important Bird Areas are intended as a resource for those making land management decisions. These have been created with to address the needs of agency biologists, land managers, and others who deal with everyday decisions that affect birds and their habitats. There is no need to be an expert in native birds to use these plans, but they are also helpful for those that do have extensive experience with birds. Each plan outlines the details of bird conservation opportunities within Arizona’s IBAs as well as challenges. You will also find information about priority species for conservation as well and information on which species can serve as good indicators of habitat health.
We hope these plans are useful in 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:
