The Western Hummingbird Partnership (WHP) is a developing network of partners collaborating to build an effective and sustainable hummingbird conservation program through science-based monitoring, research, habitat restoration/enhancement, and education/outreach efforts. WHP goals are to support projects, develop programs, and build partnerships that investigate what hummingbirds need to survive, successfully reproduce, and maintain thriving populations; and then to inform land managers, policy makers, and the public so habitats can be managed in ways that help hummingbirds and their communities thrive. In addition to directly influencing the conservation of hummingbirds and their habitats, the WHP can also contribute to an agency’s ability to meet their greater goals/priorities for conservation of ecosystems in general.
The Western Hummingbird Information Network (WHIN) is the home website of the WHP and is a clearinghouse for information relative to hummingbirds and hummingbird conservation.
The mission of WHIN is to discover, archive, present and visualize information on hummingbirds, help apply that information to the landscape and conservation efforts, and to identify and highlight the issues and opportunities that are important to hummingbird conservation.
