Among the highlights of the week's agenda will be a special session on Sunday, Jan. 27, outlining the revisions to the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP), a years-long project spearheaded by Dr. Jim Ringelman, director of conservation programs in DU's Great Plains Region.

"This project will conserve our vanishing prairie for wildlife, ranchers and the general public," said Jim Ringelman, DU director of conservation programs for North and South Dakota. "It keeps the land in private ownership, using voluntary easements while maintaining farmland used for grazing and haying."
Ringelman says, with a waiting list of more than 600 willing landowners in the Dakotas, there is no shortage of interest in ranchers wanting to sell conservation easements. "The real limiting factor is the funding," he said.
Ringelman says native prairie and wetlands help South Dakota's economy with beef production and tourism dependent on these two resources. "Cattle producers are critical to protecting the prairie landscape," he said.

According to DU's Dr. James Ringelman, director of conservation planning for the Great Plains Regional Office in Bismarck, North Dakota: "By the time duck season rolled around, much of the U.S. Prairie Pothole Region (primarily North & South Dakota) was in moderate to severe drought.

Dr. James K. Ringelman Director of Conservation Programs - ND - SD - MT
Dr. Ringelman began his career as a waterfowl biologist in 1975, when he commenced his graduate studies on duck brood behavior and visibility at South Dakota State University. Since that time he has been a practicing waterfowl researcher, conservation biologist, and program administrator. His doctoral research on the breeding ecology of the black duck in Maine was the first attempt to quantify habitat use by this elusive species using radio telemetry. After his work in Maine, Dr. Ringelman began his research career with the Colorado Division of Wildlife's research group in Fort Collins. There he studied duck breeding and wintering ecology in a host of ecosystems - from high elevation montane systems, to the wetland complexes of Colorado's intermountain basins, to the riparian habitats of the Platte and Arkansas River systems. Jim was also an affiliate faculty member in the Department of Fishery and Wildlife Biology at Colorado State University, where he served on several graduate committees. Later in his career with the CDOW, he became the Avian Research Leader, administered the state duck stamp program, created and managed the Colorado Wetlands Initiative, and served as the State Waterfowl Biologist through his role in the Central Flyway. Dr. Ringelman began his career with Ducks Unlimited in 1996. He helped develop a diverse program at the Great Plains Regional Office that included new land protection and easement programs, GIS and research capabilities, and enhanced programs in Colorado, Nebraska, and Minnesota. Today, Jim manages all facets of DU's conservation programs in the heart of the U.S. Prairie Pothole Region - the Dakotas and Montana. He continues to focus on new ways to achieve waterfowl conservation benefits using the best available science, innovative approaches, and practical programs that work for conservationists and landowners alike.

"The ironic part of this is conversion of grassland results in the release of carbon dioxide stored in the soil by prairie grasses, which further contributes to warming the climate," said Dr. Jim Ringelman, director of conservation programs for DU's Great Plains region. "However, if structured correctly, climate change legislation can protect and restore grassland across the Great Plains while also removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This will help reduce atmospheric warming."
Ringelman says climate change is one of the most significant challenges facing conservationists and continued habitat loss only magnifies that problem.
"We believe climate-change legislation that recognizes the value in terrestrial storage of carbon will provide the multiple benefits of reducing gases that contribute to climate change while also benefitting grassland wildlife," he said.
