These performance measures provide information that pertains to conservation actions and provide for revisions to these actions if needed.

Other partners included are Ducks Unlimited, the National Turkey Federation, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, The American Fisheries Society, The Wildlife Society an the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. The Illinois Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy is scheduled for reviews and revision every 10 years. The purpose of this is for this reviewing the conservation status of the GCN species and to revise the list if necessary, to determine if modification is necessary. Mississippi wildlife along the rivers can be natural, common or even rare and unique. The water areas not only support
such common and unique wildlife but varieties of vegetation are supported as well. The areas along the river and the river itself support a great variety of plants and wildlife because there is an abundance of natural cover, a good amount of isolation, and food. This food is provided by plants such as sedges, pondweeds, and millets. Many birds flock to the area.
