DescriptionPartners in Flight (PIF) is a coalition of federal, state, and local government agencies; nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); philanthropic foundations; and industry that is working to conserve the birds of the Western Hemisphere. PIF was launched in 1990 in response to growing concerns about declines in the populations of many landbirds, and to spearhead the conservation of birds not covered by existing initiatives, such as the North America Waterfowl Management Plan. The initial focus of PIF was on Neotropical migrants (species that breed in North America north of the tropics and winter in Central America and/or South America). The emphasis has expanded to include most landbirds and other marine and aquatic species that require terrestrial habitats. PIF is coordinated in the United States by four regional working groups (Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, and West) and five technical working groups (Research, Monitoring, International, Communications, and Education) that represent participating agencies of state governments, the federal government, a variety of NGOs, and private industry.
