About Playa Lakes Joint Venture
Playa Lakes Joint Venture is a regional partnership of federal and state wildlife agencies, conservation groups and private industry dedicated to conserving bird habitat throughout the western Great Plains — including portions of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. PLJV facilitates communication and coordination among partners, provides science-based information and tools, and removes roadblocks to conservation.
As a migratory bird joint venture, the partnership works to ensure that all birds have a home. That means maintaining a balance of habitat types to support landbirds, waterbirds and waterfowl, and shorebirds. Like people, birds have different requirements for where they live. From grasslands and shrublands to various types of wetlands, each habitat plays an important role in providing a home for the many species of birds — and people — that depend on this landscape.
