Conserving bird habitat through science and partnerships across the Intermountain West.
The mission of the IWJV is to conserve priority bird habitats through partnership-driven, science-based projects and programs. We bring people and organizations together to leverage technical and financial resources, building our collective capacity to achieve conservation at meaningful scales.
The IWJV operates across parts of 11 western states, including Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon, and Utah.
This region encompasses some of the most diverse and intact landscapes in the West and provide continentally and regionally significant habitat for a suite of waterfowl, shorebird, waterbird, and landbird species such as Northern Pintail, Cinnamon Teal, Wilson’s Phalarope, American Avocet, Greater Sandhill Crane, White-faced Ibis, Greater Sage-Grouse, Long-billed Curlew, Willow Flycatcher, and Lewis’s Woodpecker.
IWJV partnership is comprised of federal and state wildlife agencies, conservation groups, tribes, and private landowners dedicated to conserving bird habitat in the Intermountain West.
