Shorebird Habitat Management

Joint Ventures 
These partnerships work with the U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan to provide shorebird habitat across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.  Many joint ventures have implementation plans that set population and habitat targets for shorebirds in their specific geography.

Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN) 
The mission of WHSRN is to conserve shorebirds and their habitats through a network of key sites across the Americas. They focus on site-based conservation.
