The Integrated Waterbird Management & Monitoring (IWMM) is a landscape level conservation program that aims to enable managers and decision-makers to ensure that nonbreeding waterbirds have the right habitat, in the right place, at the right time.

IWMM is transitioning to a new monitoring protocol and a centralized, online database for the 2015-16 field season. To prepare participants for the transition to the new protocol and database, the IWMM team conducted its first training webinar in June. A second webinar is targeted for late August / early September to give detailed training on use of the database. Additionally, in-person training will be offered at various field stations. To help keep participants and supporters interested in IWMM, to stay informed and provide a community of support, a new website has been developed. This website provides detailed information about the program and a technical blog for questions, comments and discussion for those participating in the IWMM community. If you have not registered as an IWMM member on the old website, please sign up for their newsletter.
