  • Protect, restore, or enhance wetlands and other migratory bird habitats throughout the country;
  • Permanently secure habitat for birds and other wetland-dependent species, particularly high priority waterfowl;
  • Manage wetland ecosystems and conduct complementary conservation activities such as stewardship, evaluation, and communications;
  • Encourage partnerships among public agencies and other organizations as valuable mechanisms for wetland conservation; and
  • Promote sustainable use of wetlands, waterfowl, and other wetland-dependent species.
