'The 2018 North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) Update—Connecting People, Waterfowl, and Wetlands—continues a legacy of innovation and collaboration that is grounded in 32 years of successful waterfowl and wetlands conservation across the continent. Since its inception in 1986, the Plan has engaged governments, conservation organizations, landowners, and citizens throughout Canada, Mexico, and the United States using a widely acclaimed partnership model of waterfowl management. The 2012 Plan Revision presented a new strategic direction that challenged the waterfowl community to expand support from our hunters and other citizens to achieve interrelated goals for people, waterfowl populations, and wetland conservation. This 2018 Plan Update presents examples of our countries' combined progress toward achieving the goals of the 2012 Revision. It also establishes important groundwork for incorporating an understanding of people's relationship with nature into the North American waterfowl conservation enterprise'--Provided by publisher.
