Description: In the fall of 1990, a major program for the conservation of migratory landbirds that breed in North America and winter in Latin America and the Caribbean Basin was initiated. Numerous federal, state. and private organizations in the United States endorsed the initiative by signing an official agreement to cooperatively conserve populations of neotropical migratory birds. These include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Agency for International Development, Department of Defense, National Audubon Society, The Wildlife Management Institute, The Wildlife Society, International Council for Bird Preservation, and many more. Working groups for Information and Education, Research, Monitoring, International Affairs, Legislation, and Regional Management have been established to implement the program. To expand the program internationally, participation by Canadian, Latin American, and Caribbean governmental and nongovernmental organizations is sought.
