What is a Joint Venture?

A Joint Venture is a cooperative regional partnership of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan. Each Joint Venture relies on sound science and a partnership approach to conserve high-priority wetland and associated upland habitat for birds in Canada, Mexico and the United States. In Canada, there are four Habitat Joint Ventures, including the EHJV, and three Species Joint Ventures within Canada (Black Duck, Arctic Goose and Sea Duck).
