Monitoring: Other State Plans

RMBO's Monitoring Colorado's Birds program generated interest for similar plans for other western states. RMBO, with funding from the Bureau of Land Management, is developing monitoring plans for the states of New Mexico, Montana, and Wyoming. As monitoring projects in these states come on-line it will be important that the states cooperate in monitoring as they share many of the same species.

The plans recognize that different agencies tend to manage or have influence over certain habitats more than others. This fact drives the monitoring plans which are also habitat-based and results in a large cooperative effort where many agencies take-on a few aspects of monitoring. Each cooperating group accomplishes a part of the plan and benefits greatly from other groups that are also contributing to the overall statewide tasks.
