Kirtland's Warbler Information Inventory Archive


The Kirtland's Warbler Recovery Team was one of the first recovery teams appointed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) under the 1973 Endangered Species Act. The team membership was carefully chosen to represent the three managing agencies [Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and USFWS] involved in the recovery activities for the species. The work of the Kirtland's Warbler Recovery Team over the last 25 years successfully brought an endangered species back from the brink of extinction despite impossible odds. The partnerships, techniques and process have been documented here for future generations to use as a model for future successes. As an accompaniment to the Monograph detailing the history and process of the recovery effort, is this remarkable inventory of information containing nearly 1400 items, including articles, book chapters, cooperative agreements, correspondence, interviews, meeting minutes, maps, outreach, photos, policy, press releases, recovery and habitat management plans, reports, papers, sighting and banding records, theses and dissertations. Also contains an Access Database of all materials.
