Despite being one of the most popular game species in the East, with a long history of intensive management attention, Northern Bobwhite populations are still experiencing long-term, precipitous declines due to the loss of native grasslands. Working with partners such as The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative, and Central Hardwoods Joint Venture, ABC is drawing attention to the plight of this species and working to turn trends

around. However, millions of acres of early successional habitat need to be restored in order for this species to flourish once more.
