NAWMP logoA new draft of the 2012 North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) is now available on the NAWMP Revision website. This draft has evolved considerably from the first version released last summer, reflecting the useful feedback the NAWMP Plan Committee received during the open comment period.

The Plan Committee is not entertaining additional comments on this draft. However, a special session on the 2012 NAWMP will be held at the upcoming North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference in Atlanta. The session will be held Monday, March 12, from 1-4 PM. Presenters at the session will review the key elements of the 2012 NAWMP, discuss next steps towards implementation, and solicit input from attendees.
