PARTNERSHIPS ARE KEY

By forging strong partnerships, Wings Across the Americas addresses the national and international needs of priority bird species and habitats, including stopover sites along flyways.


For example, if the endangered Kirtland Warbler (breeds only in Michigan and winters in the Bahamas) needs assistance on wintering habitat, Wings Across the Americas can help by providing specific research expertise and training in monitoring and managing areas for bird conservation in cooperation with local partners as well as working in partnership with conservation groups and Federal, State, and local agencies to address funding, research, and management needs in the breeding area.

Western Hemisphere Hummingbird Project: The US Forest Service (FS) and the Hummingbird Monitoring Network (HMN) are working together to develop and implement the Western Hummingbird Project (WHP), which will address hummingbird conservation issues in western North America.
