The report on California's Central Valley and rice habitat for birds was excellent. It's crucial work which has an impact on waterfowl, shorebirds, long-legged waders, and some important raptors and songbirds, for starters. The Nature Conservancy's fine cooperative work with the farmers is just one example of long-standing efforts involving multiple partners.

Other actors have included the California Rice Commission, Ducks Unlimited, Point Reyes Bird Observatory (now Point Blue Conservation Science), and the Central Valley Migratory Bird Joint Venture.

It couldn't work without many thoughtful partners.
