This chapter focuses on the decline of waterbird populations and efforts to restore them whose migrations take them along parts of the Missouri River, or who depend on the Missouri River and its backwaters for nesting, breeding, rearing, and migratory feeding. These include pelicans, wood ducks, and least tern. The Grand Pass Conservation Area, Big Muddy National Fish and Wildlife Refuge, and Hamburg Bend Wildlife Management Area are described.
