In August, EAAFP Foundation delivered the donation from Ms. Green Choi to the EAAFP Spoon-billed Sandpiper Task Force.

The donated fund will be used to contribute to the essential work on the breeding grounds of Spoon-billed Sandpipers in Chukotka Russia to safe the breeding population, guards and monitor the nest and conduct the head-starting work.
