North American Waterfowl Management Plan

The North American Waterfowl Management Plan, built on a foundation of partnerships to restore and enhance waterfowl habitats, is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's primary waterfowl recovery initiative.

Partners for Fish and Wildlife is the way we implement the private land habitat restoration objectives of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan. Through an alliance of state, federal, and private wildlife managers, Partners for Fish and Wildlife carries out wetland and grassland restoration projects in partnership with farmers and ranchers.
