Network Partners are organizations that play a key role in the operational aspects of the Network throughout its entirety, or at least on a broad geographic basis. Partners from throughout the hemisphere are essential to WHSRN's effectiveness for all aspects of the work program. Partner organizations provide connections, funding, services and/or support to a number of sites on either a geographic (i.e. a large region) or thematic (e.g. training, education programs) basis. Partners include government agencies, non-profit organizations, governing bodies for indigenous peoples, academic centers, businesses and related conservation consortia.

“The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network exemplifies the benefits possible when good science and collaborative processes form the basis of an integrated approach to migratory species conservation. The on-the-ground partnerships we enjoy with WHSRN are playing a key role in helping the U.S. Forest Service achieve its mission to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation’s forests and grasslands.”
