Research Task: RB00CNG.8.0
Task Manager: Janet Ruth
Partners in Flight (PIF) is an interagency, interorganizational coalition working together to promote bird conservation. As the research agency in the Department of the Interior, USGS has a responsibility to participate in and contribute to avian conservation planning and science. It is necessary to have designated representatives from USGS who participate regularly in PIF and transmit information about PIF to the appropriate contacts within USGS. This task provides USGS with a designated Partners in Flight Coordinator/contact to ensure that (1) USGS interests are represented within PIF, (2) PIF information is disseminated throughout the USGS, and (3) the USGS is capable of incorporating PIF’s bird conservation priorities into its science plans and budgets. The PIF Coordinator for USGS represents USGS at regular national and international PIF meetings and contributes regularly to the international PIF Science Committee on avian research and monitoring issues.
