The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Migratory Bird Program initiated a Focal Species strategy for migratory birds to better measure its success in achieving its bird conservation priorities and mandates. The Focal Species strategy involves campaigns for selected species to provide explicit, strategic, and adaptive sets of conservation actions required to return the species to healthy and sustainable levels.
