This is a very interesting op-ed contribution by Deborah Cramer, visiting scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), about the decline of long-distance migrating shorebirds in the Americas. Some of the species mentioned in the article are listed on Convention on Migratory Species (UNEP-CMS) for example Red Knot, Semipalmated Sandpiper and Eskimo curlew.@ BirdLife International
