Western Hemispheric

Migratory Species Initiative




WHMSI is building country capacity to conserve and manage migratory wildlife.  It improves hemispheric communication on conservation issues of common interest, provides training in priority areas, strengthens the exchange of information needed for informed decision-making, and provides a forum to address emerging issues such as new threats to migratory species, or the connections between wildlife disease and human diseases. 




The purpose of these conferences is to develop cooperative strategies for conservation of migratory species and collaboration more broadly on a wide array of wildlife conservation issues among the countries of the Western Hemisphere
