    Description

    In 1990, a group of far-sighted individuals from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service launched the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Initiative. At the time, few people noticed. New programs are launched all the time. In government, at least, it is easy to become cynical about the initiative du jour, the latest vision statement, the fresh reorganization, and the coolest new fad in management. Initiatives come and go. Most seem to be missing something essential, some internal spark that strikes a chord with people. If we're lucky, they just fade away. Very few new ideas can say that they have grown steadily for 11 years and fewer yet can claim to having been instrumental in spawning yet further initiatives. Partners in Flight can say both.
