SEQSG Expands Scope Nationally
April 2, 2009
The Southeast Quail Study Group membership voted unanimously to change the scope and name of the 14 year-old group to the National Bobwhite Technical Committee (NBTC). New bylaws can be found on the PUBLICATIONS page. This is one of the first steps in an effort to unite bobwhite enthusiasts throughout the species’ range. This transformation was initiated by the Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative Committee of the Southeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. In step with the new name of the technical committee, the name of the initiative is being changed from Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative to National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative (NBCI). The next step for the NBCI is revision of the 2002 restoration plan to reflect the range-wide expansion.
