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, with most projects in the $1,000 - $5,000 range, for activities that will benefit knowledge of hummingbird populations and their conservation and public awareness of hummingbirds, especially migratory species with ranges in western Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
Examples of projects of interest include those that explore climate change impacts 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. Research proposals should demonstrate a clear nexus to conservation.
