This project involved 500 children and helpers from 12 areas and 8 countries (Russia, Republic of Korea, Japan, Jiangsu and Fujian in mainland China, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar and Bangladesh) which are along Spoon-billed Sandpiper’s migratory route. Children helped colouring over 1200 pictures for the animation one by one. The whole project took about 8 months for the production. At the end of the animation, there were video clips showing kids shouting “Save the Spoon-billed Sandpiper!” in their own language.
The project was sponsored by Eric Hosking Charitable Trust. It was coordinated by the China Programme of BirdLife International/Hong Kong Bird Watching Society with the participation from Birds Russia, Birds Korea, Wild Bird Society of Japan (WBSJ), Fujian Bird Watching Society, Viet Nature Conservation, Bird Conservation Society of Thailand (BCST), Biodiversity And Nature Conservation Association (BANCA) and Bangladesh Spoon-billed Sandpiper Conservation Project.
