About San Francisco Bay Joint Venture

Joint Ventures were originally established to address the need for conservation of waterfowl and wetlands under the North American Waterfowl Management Plan and have since broadened their focus to include habitats for all birds, consistent with major national and continental bird conservation plans and the North American Bird Conservation Initiative.

Through biologically-based actions, Joint Ventures work to ensure the existence of the diverse habitats necessary to sustain migratory bird populations for the benefit of those species, resident wildlife and the public.

Here in the Bay Area, the San Francisco Bay Joint Venture seeks to protect, restore, increase and enhance all types of wetlands, riparian habitat and associated uplands throughout the nine Bay Area counties for the benefit of birds, fish and other wildlife.
