Migratory Shore and Upland Game Bird Working Group

The Migratory Shore and Upland Game Bird Working Group is responsible for keeping the Association informed on matters impacting all migratory shore and upland game birds.

The working group should keep current with developments and management needs and maintain active liaison with the Fish and Wildlife Service and the Legal Counsel.  The subcommittee should work closely with the regional associations on matters related to appropriate wildlife species and should draft and recommend positions to the Executive Committee for action.

 The working group shall work closely with the Bird Conservation Committee, the flyway councils, interagency advisory groups, and the Department of the Interior to identify problems and management opportunities regarding migratory shore and upland game birds.  The working group should develop objectives and strategies for solving problems and addressing management challenges.

The working group should recognize the international nature of managing migratory shore and upland game birds, and support those initiatives that involve international negotiations and be prepared to contribute to the activities and involvement of the International Relations Committee and the Bird Conservation Committee as appropriate.
