Inspiring Actions for Migratory Shorebird Conservation - Birdlife International Webinar

Many migratory waterbirds in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway are in steep decline. Shorebirds are among the hardest hit, and species such as the Spoon-billed Sandpiper have declined by nearly 90% within the past two decades. Many more have lost a great deal of their habitat all over our flyway and are on the brink of extinction. But there is still a window of opportunity to take action to save our shorebirds.

In fact, conservationists from all over the region are working hard on the ground to protect the wetlands our migratory birds need, whether through engaging governments and local people, or devising new and creative approaches to restore shorebird habitat. At this fascinating webinar, jointly organised by BirdLife International, BirdLife Australia, Bird Conservation Society of Thailand, Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Association and the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society, eight conservationists working on the ground to save migratory waterbirds will share their experiences and success stories from their respective parts of the Flyway, and how their work can provide inspiration and insights for work elsewhere in the region.
