DescriptionThe North Pacific is a highly productive marine area, sustaining millions of resident and migratory marine birds. These birds are faced with a variety of threats, both on land, where they breed and roost, and at sea, where they forage for food. Several seabird conservation plans are currently underway in this region. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Pacific Region Seabird Conservation Plan is a strategic planning effort (currently underway), to review seabird conservation efforts in the Pacific Region and identify USFWS priorities for management, monitoring, research, and outreach in California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, and the U.S. Pacific islands. The California Current System Marine Bird Adaptive Conservation Plan (CCS Plan) is a multispecies adaptive conservation plan for marine birds inhabiting the California Current System from southern British Columbia to Baja California. The focus of this plan is on-going scientific study, monitoring, data analysis, publication and outreach. For the British Columbia region, the Canadian Wildlife Service has developed an adaptive seabird conservation plan. Coordination between these three plans, within the context of the broader scale North American Waterbird Conservation Plan (NAWCP), is essential.
