Last fall, the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative, self-admittedly “a late entry in the long-running national drama” of bobwhite quail conservation,” published a 46-page report on the State of the Bobwhite. The report provides a valuable summary of population data, research and contacts for the 25 states participating in the initiative.
The report concludes that despite conservation efforts, bobwhite populations are still declining, all though they are not declining as steeply as they have in the past. A blog post on the report in the Charlotte Observer notes that all species dependent on the same grassland habitat are in decline.
What are other states doing that your state isn’t? Which states have notable bobwhite programs?
