In September 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) held its World Conservation Congress in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Sonoran Joint Venture was invited to participate in a symposium at this year’s congress focusing on the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) as a model for international conservation success.
Did you know that the Sonoran Joint Venture includes California’s Channel Islands, as well as all of the Pacific islands off the coast of Baja California and Baja California Sur? The SJV was thrilled to attend the California Islands Symposium, which took place in early October in Ventura, California.
Ten years ago, the Sonoran Joint Venture received a Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) grant to fund riparian restoration and research at a private ranch in Sonora, Mexico. Recently, SJV Science Coordinator Carol Beardmore had the opportunity to visit one of the project sites and tag along with researchers running camera traps at Rancho El Aribabi in northern Sonora.
