We use the best available science to ensure the survival of Montana's birds and other wildlife.
The Montana Bird Conservation Partnership (MBCP) is a coalition of representatives from state, federal, and tribal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector dedicated to conserving bird populations and habitats in Montana.
Montana Audubon is a leader in this partnership, whose mission is to “keep common birds common” while also conserving sensitive or rare species. The MBCP uses science to direct habitat conservation priorities, and work with landowners and managers to recommend conservation actions that are practical and sustainable for land stewards. The MBCP is chaired by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks biologist, Kristina Smucker.
Please visit the MBCP website for more information.
THE MBCP also works to facilitate statewide implementation of the four National bird initiatives, Partner’s in Flight, Waterbirds, Waterfowl, and Shorebirds, and the overarching North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI).
