2012 Revision, Revised Objectives

2014 Addendum Cover
September 2014

The recommendation outlined in the 2012 Revision of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP or Plan) to “ Develop, revise or reaffirm NAWMP objectives so that all facets of North American waterfowl management share a common benchmark ” presented a timely challenge for the waterfowl management community. Work throughout 2013-14 has led to this document, an addendum to the Plan , which outlines revised objectives for waterfowl populations, waterfowl habitat, and those who enjoy and actively support waterfowl and wetlands conservation. These revised objectives should guide waterfowl management as the Plan continues to evolve and as new information is acquired about supporters’ values, habitat conservation is focused, and harvest management perspectives are assessed.
