Rio Grande Joint Venture

The Rio Grande Joint Venture is a newly forming habitat-based Joint Venture covering the Chihuahuan Desert and Tamaulipan Brushlands Bird Conservation Regions in Texas and Mexico. A Joint Venture is a regional, self-directed partnership that delivers science-based bird and habitat conservation. JVs work in part in support of national and international bird conservation plans. The RGJV and its Partners are dedicated to the conservation of habitat within the Rio Grande Joint Venture Region. Existing Joint Ventures provide a model of success for cooperative bird conservation efforts.

The Rio Grande Joint Venture formed in 2006. The Management Board meets twice per year, and the two Technical Teams - one for each BCR - also meet regularly.
