WHSRNews Special Note

You're invited: Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Conservation Plan reception

 

Dear WHSRN Friends and Shorebird Supporters,

You are invited to attend the reception, described above, on 10 May 2012 at 5:30 pm in the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. 

Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences is hosting the event with Senators Whitehouse (Rhode Island) and Cardin (Maryland) in support of a “call to action” for the Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Conservation Plan.

The Plan, itself, is a collaborative effort of dozens of conservation leaders and groups, scientists, and funders to recover and then safeguard the populations of shorebirds across their entire lifecycle along the Atlantic Flyway of the Americas.  The Northeast Office of U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Manomet have provided the backbone organization that is currently creating the Plan.

We hope you’ll be able to join us! If so, please RSVP to Martha Sheldon (msheldon@manomet.org).

We encourage you to share this invitation with others whom you think might be interested.

Sincerely,
WHSRN Executive Office
Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences
