San Francisco Bay Joint Venture

Planning Survey


Thank you for taking 15-20 minutes of your time to complete this short survey. Your feedback is very important and appreciated. 

The purpose of this survey is to find out what SF Bay Joint Venture partners and members value about our Joint Venture.  Answers to these questions will help the Management Board establish priorities at their annual planning retreat on November 5th. 


The mission of the San Francisco Bay Joint Venture is to protect, restore, increase and enhance all types of wetlands, riparian habitat and associated uplands throughout the San Francisco Bay region to benefit birds, fish and other wildlife.


Two years ago the SFBJV adopted a 5-year plan that established strategic goals in each of 4 programmatic areas. They are to:


1. Expand and accelerate habitat conservation to 60,200 additional acres from existing JV goals while facilitating adaptability to climate change.
2. Secure legislation and funding to successfully implement the bay, sub-tidal and upland goals and ensure full funding of the SF Bay JV as well as all JVs.
3. We will know the threshold levels of maintaining healthy habitats to sustain focal species.
4. Seventy percent of target audiences take necessary action to support JV goals.


In an era of diminishing financial resources, the SFBJV Executive Committee needs your help to identify priorities and potential ways to accomplish the above four strategic goals.


Please take about 15 – 20 minutes now to answer the questions in this survey.  It will close on October 11. As you think about your answers, keep in mind that the JV is a sum of its parts: the Management Board; partners that participate on working and task committees; project managers, scientists, and the JV contractors who facilitate coordination of the partnership.
