The Nevada IBA Program has been active since September of 2001. The Program completed the first round of nominations and currently has 39 recognized IBAs. The 39 IBAs represent about fifteen percent of the state's land area. The IBA Program is working closely with key partners to develop conservation strategies for these landscapes, develop on-the-ground projects, and in general work towards stewardship of these sites. IBAs are integrated into the Nevada Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy. Sites over lapping Forest Service System Lands are the highest priority for conservation planning, a process which should result in their integration into the current round of Forest Plan revisions on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. To formalize these sites, the Lahontan Audubon Society, with support from the Rio Tinto - BirdLife Programme and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has published the book titled "Important Bird Areas of Nevada".
