National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative

National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative

Knoxville, TN --(Ammoland.com)- Scale is the core of the bobwhite problem, and the fundamental challenge. Wildlife agencies and managers excel at managing grassland bird habitat at the field and project level. However, the wildlife management profession struggles to cope with landscape-scale habitat challenges, especially for resident game birds.

National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative (NBCI) deploys an innovative “pyramid strategy” to tackle a bobwhite challenge that has defied conventional tactics for more than a half-century. This long-term strategy — developed in consultation with the National Bobwhite Technical Committee (NBTC) — aims to magnify the scale of ground-level habitat restoration by emphasizing concurrent, coordinated action by all quail and grassland bird conservationists at national, regional, state, and local levels. The NBCI’s role is range-wide leadership, coordination and capacity with ambitious goals to (1) stop the habitat bleeding, and (2) begin achieving landscape-scale net gain of native grassland habitats.

No single agency or group can restore enough habitat to make the needed difference. Only by synergistic cooperation and action among all levels can conservationists forge meaningful progress. There are no guarantees … except that the traditional laissez faire, small-scale approach will not work. Hope lies with the NBCI 2.0 plan, universal buy-in and increased attention by all states and partners, a fully capable NBCI operational center, and synergistic implementation.
