It is officially Fall season, as well as the peak holiday trip planning season. For this winter’s birdwatching trip, there is a great Spoon-billed Sandpiper Conservation tour organized by the Bird Holidays, ArcCona and the Spoon-billed Sandpiper Task Force at the Myanmar coast. Being one of the most ornithologically diverse country in South East Asia, and also holding most of the remaining population of the Spoon-billed Sandpipers, Myanmar coast boasts irresistible natural beauty.
These ecotours play an important role in conservation efforts: they bring works to the local people; they increase awareness for the conservation efforts; and they also provide opportunities for participant to make counts of species and send to appropriate organizations to aid in their continued research and conservation activities.
Please visit the Saving the Spoon-billed Sandpipers article as well as the Bird Holidays description page> of the trip for more details. Please also note: “For each person who books on the tour Bird Holidays will donate US$50 to BANCA, the local charity working with the fishing villages to protect spoon-billed sandpipers. They will also donate a minimum of £50 for each person to the spoon-billed sandpiper conservation breeding programme, but Bird Holidays will increase this to £200 if you mention this blog ( Saving the Spoon-billed Sandpiper blog) when booking.”
