Bobwhite Quail to Benefit from Agency Partnership

199

Virginia’s bobwhite quail populations will enjoy improved habitat thanks to a new partnership between agencies that will encourage best land-management practices among non-commercial landowners in the state’s six bobwhite focus areas.

Mike Black, forestry coordinator for the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative, enthusiastically endorses the Virginia effort, saying,

“There is no greater opportunity in the historic range of bobwhite quail for habitat restoration than the forested landscape, and reconnecting forests with quail is one of NBCI’s top priorities. We encourage state forestry entities in all 25 NBCI states to join in examining opportunities for wildlife habitat creation on both public and private forestlands in their respective states.”
