Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network

Support WHSRN

Individual Support

We are all connected by shorebirds. As "messengers of the skies," their vast migrations teach us the importance of community and environmental stewardship on a hemispheric scale. WHSRN’s global alliance with hundreds of different conservation, business, community and government organizations is united to protect millions acres of wetlands and the wildlife and human communities that are dependent on them.

But over half of all shorebird species show evidence of serious decline, and wetland habitats are imperiled.

To save shorebirds and wetlands, WHSRN is moving boldly to expand the network through new partners, research, outreach, and tools.

At the heart of this conservation challenge are people, like you, committed to the power of WHSRN’s mission. We hope you will learn more about WHSRN through this web site, and give generously, in partnership, so that we can strengthen and expand the network.
