North American Migratory Bird Joint Ventures: 25 Years
The Playa Lakes Joint Venture (PLJV) benefits from a broad coalition of partners representing the conservation community on the national, regional and state levels. We also facilitate the development of locally-led conservation partnerships that bring financial, technical and local expertise to develop on-the-ground conservation projects throughout the western Great Plains. Together, PLJV partners have raised more than $50 million to conduct more than 450 conservation projects since 1990.
