Description: Marine and upland habitats in western Washington and Oregon provide essential conditions for many wintering and migratory shorebird species along the Pacific Flyway. Known or potential threats to shorebirds include loss or degradation of habitat, invasion of exotic vegetation and invertebrates, environmental pollution, and human disturbance. Initial priority activities should focus on protecting, restoring, and enhancing shorebird habitats. Monitoring will be required to evaluate shorebird responses to management efforts. Implementation of the Northern Pacific Coast shorebird plan's key elements likely will require parsimonious incorporation of shorebirds into other multi-species, habitat-based or ecosystem-level conservation efforts; the Pacific Coast Joint venture likely will play a crucial role in this regard. Success of the planning effort will be determined by evaluating population responses at local (short-term) or flyway (longterm) scales, by reducing and/or eliminating threats, and by purchase or protection of important shorebird areas, including degraded or abandoned roost sites. The overall effort will require a highly coordinated monitoring and management network within and among regions and flyways. Because some of the most important habitats used by shorebirds are of great economic value to humans, outreach activities must effectively convey a meaningful conservation message to the public.
