    The Western Hummingbird Partnership works to build an effective and sustainable hummingbird conservation program through research, monitoring, habitat restoration and enhancement, and education. WHP has limited funding (average project budget is $5,0000, with most projects in the $1,000 - $5,000 range) for projects that will benefit knowledge of hummingbird populations and their conservation and public awareness of hummingbirds, especially migratory species with ranges in western Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. We hope to be able to support larger budgets in future years, so please contact us if you are pursuing a project that would benefit from a larger award, and we will keep you apprised of funding options.


    Examples of projects of interest include those that explore the impacts of climate change on hummingbirds, examine the habitat requirements of migratory hummingbird species, promote habitat restoration, and/or demonstrate successful methods of engaging the public in hummingbird conservation, education, and citizen science.


    During proposal development, applicants may consult with the WHP Coordinator, Susan Bonfield, for assistance and with any questions:
