A Forest Service Initiative
Uniting Shorebird Conservation throughout the Americas

The US Forest Service International Programs, along with the Pacific Northwest Research Station, the Chugach National Forest and Ducks Unlimited, and Ducks Unlimited of Canada established the Cooper River International Migratory Bird Initiative(CRIMBI). The initiative seeks to strengthen conservation of migratory birds along the entire flyway—from the north Slope of Alaska to the southernmost reaches of the Pacific Coast–through effective international partnerships and action on the ground.

The initiative is named for the Copper River Delta, the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the western hemisphere flyway, because of its crucial role in the survival of coastal migrant waterbirds. The Copper River Delta has been designated a Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Hemispheric Site—the most important designation awarded to a world shorebird site.

Partnerships are key

This initiative links efforts of the Copper River Delta with conservation work along the Pacific Flyway critical for various bird species. Cooperating with counterparts at key domestic and international sites, the initiative works to improve wildlife resources along the entire flyway. Partners include, Ducks Unlimited of Mexico (DUMAC) , Pronatura, Prince William County School Network, and Panama Audubon Society.
