Appalachian Mountains (Bird) Joint Venture

The Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture (AMJV; is a self-directed partnership of public, private, and non-profit entities, organized to advance the conservation (protection, restoration, and enhancement) of priority bird populations and their habitats throughout the Appalachian Mountains Bird Conservation Region (AMBCR) including all or portions of 12 states from southern New York and northwestern New Jersey to northeastern Alabama.  The over-arching objective of the AMJV, originally formed in 2007 and approved by USFWS in 2008, is to ensure the sustainability of native bird populations through strategic conservation of habitats (and overall ecosystem functionality) upon which native birds rely.  The AMJV partnership has committed its support to achieve the goals and vision of the North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI), and the conservation of habitats for all birds consistent with major national and continental bird conservation plans, as well as bird conservation objectives identified in Wildlife Action Plans of partner states.
