Recognizing the importance of bird conservation in Florida, our organization agrees to support bird conservation efforts through participation in the Florida Bird Conservation Initiative, and acknowledges the following principles that are important to this effort:

Bird conservation depends upon the close voluntary partnership and coordination of the diverse skills and resources of private and public landowners, government agencies, businesses, private and public institutions, and all citizens who care for birds.

  • Bird conservation demands that attention be placed on the full array of wild bird species throughout the future.
  • Bird conservation will be based on the best available scientific information.
  • An ecological landscape approach allows bird conservation to be integrated successfully into sustainable land-use patterns.
  • Knowledge will be shared widely to encourage voluntary stewardship and further bird-based recreation.

The Florida Bird Conservation Initiative requires no formal commitment to any specific actions by any of its partners. It does imply that partners have a desire to build strong connections among bird conservation organizations and individuals in keeping common birds common and reversing species declines in Florida.

On behalf of the members of the above-named organization, I  hereby commit ourselves to working as members of the Florida Bird Conservation Initiative to protect, restore, and enhance the populations and habitats of Florida's wild birds.
