A continental landscape where non-breeding waterbirds have the right habitat, in the right place, at the right time.
Three guilds: waterfowl, shorebirds, and waders
Three parameters: bird counts, habitat conditions, and management actions
Three scales: local, regional, and flyway
We provide standardized, peer-reviewed monitoring protocols and a centralized data center for entering data and generating reports
Why it matters
Management affects habitat which impacts bird numbers and diversity.
IWMM is the only protocol that captures all three parameters and seeks to understand their interaction.
