In 2016, Wader Conservation World Watch will take place on 5th and 6th November
Make a note in your diary now.
To take part is as simple as A, B, C.
A. Go out and see waders/shorebirds wherever you are in the world.
B. Send us an email telling us what you have seen and where.
C. We’ll create a list the species seen between us worldwide.
D. Look for your name on the roll of honour on the website.
It is that easy; no registering required just good old-fashioned bird watching… oh! And an email. email@example.com
Wader Conservation World Watch is all about participating and standing up to say
We care that the Yellow Sea is being devastated.
We care that 50% of UK lapwings have disappeared.
We care that the Spoon-billed Sandpiper is heading for extinction.
We care that 48% of known wader populations are in decline.
We care that wet meadow nesting chicks are being destroyed by early mowing.
We care that thousands of waders are still hunted.
We care that Hooded Plovers still can’t find a place on the beach to breed.
We care that wetlands are being drained.
We care that Black Stilts only cling to existence due to captive breeding.
We care that 6 wader species are Extinct.
We care that 8 wader species are Critically Endangered.
We care that 4 of those are probably Extinct.
We care that 9 wader species are Endangered (2 new recently).
We care that 9 wader species are Vulnerable.
We care that 29 wader species are Near threatened (6 new recently)
We care enough to stand up and be counted.
Waders need love too!
Note: For our purposes there is no necessity to count the birds however if you are willing and able to do so we would encourage you to enter your lists on public databases such as eBird and BirdTrack to add to our general knowledge of wader distribution and population levels. In particular we would be interested to hear about any colour-ringed or flagged birds, information that may be of some interest to researchers.
