WHSRN awarded major grant to foster shorebird conservation throughout the Western Hemisphere

MANOMET, MA, December 19, 2006 -- The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (Foundation) recently approved a $378,780 grant to the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences (Manomet) to sustain the development and implementation of conservation programs that address the decline of shorebird populations throughout the Western Hemisphere.

The conservation activities will be conducted by the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN), a coalition of conservation organizations with 64 shorebird protected sites in eight nations of the Western Hemisphere. The Executive Office of WHSRN is a Manomet program. The Foundation funds will be matched by Manomet and other non-governmental organizations for a total investment of more than $757,560.

Several new hemispheric conservation initiatives will be implemented in this third consecutive year of funding for WSHRN, with a focus on strengthening partnerships, protecting key habitat, and applying tools that improve the scope and pace of habitat conservation at each site within the network.

Peter Stangel, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's Eastern Partnership Office Director, noted that this grant represents a new approach for the Foundation's grant-making. "This third year of support for shorebird conservation activities through WHSRN epitomizes the Foundation's new strategic approach to bird conservation. Manomet and WHSRN are leaders in building partnership-based, comprehensive bird and habitat conservation programs, and we are very pleased to enter into this alliance with them."

"This award represents a continuing partnership between WHSRN and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation," said Charles Duncan, director of the Executive Office of WHSRN.
