Conserving the Worthen’s Sparrow

The Rio Grande Joint Venture recently met with partners in Monterrey, Mexico to develop a draft conservation plan for the Worthen’s Sparrow.

The meeting was led by researchers from the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León and officials from the Comisión Nacional de Areas Naturales Protegidas. It brought together Mexican federal, state, non-profit, and academic partners to provide expert input and assist with the development of the Programa de Acción para la Conservación de la Especie (PACE) for the endemic Worthen’s Sparrow.
