Biennial Reports

North American Wetlands Conservation Act


The 2012-2013 North American Wetlands Conservation Act Biennial Report highlights bird habitat conservation grants across North America.

In this edition, we focus on the impact of our grants throughout the annual life cycle of a few of our continent?s migratory birds. The report is divided into six sections, with highlights of special projects and unique habitats interspersed throughout. The first three sections provide a detailed analysis of grant projects funded by the North American Wetlands Conservation Act in fiscal years 2012 and 2013. These are broken down by region and state or province.
