There are as few as 100 breeding pairs of spoon-billed sandpipers in the wild and at a rate of 25 percent rate of decline each year, the species could be extinct within a decade. http://bit.ly/2mrYxGk #TheirFutureOurFuture #WMBD2017


The Yellow Sea is an important stopover site for many #migratorybirds, including the spoon-billed sandpiper. Conserving these wetlands is necessary to ensure the survival of waterbird species. http://bit.ly/2jT3t4v #TheirFutureOurFuture #WMBD2017


Migratory birds are truly incredible and they are under threat! Learn more about their perilous journeys, as landscapes are developed and stopover sites vanish. Birds provide insect control, pollination and seed dispersal, so without them the world would be a very different place. http://bit.ly/2k6II6V #TheirFutureOurFuture - A healthy planet for #migratorybirds and people #WMBD2017
