In the 2011 edition of State of the Bobwhites: Grassland Conservation at a Crossroads, NBCI listed several action items needed for the recovery of bobwhite quail populations. One of those was membership in one or more active, habitat-based conservation organizations dedicated to expansion of bobwhite habitat. Consequently, NBCI recognizes and congratulates such habitat organizations anytime a new chapter is created. In this case, it is a new Quail Forever chapter in Burlington, Kansas, the state that most recently announced its new bobwhite initiative.
