Bangladesh Spoon-billed Sandpiper Conservation Project has been working in Bangladesh in an organized manner since 2009.

The project discovered local hunters were hunting SBS along with other shorebirds. Since 2011 the project has been working with the hunters to provide alternative income generation options.
