Spoon-billed Sandpipers

Here is the reason why I have embarked on my Wader Quest.

Maybe I can turn this idea into something that can help raise awareness to the plight of species like the Spoon-billed Sandpiper that faces extinction, and raise money for projects like that in this link about the very first 'Spoonies' being hatched in captivity in the UK.

Just one small step in the very long road to saving this delightful and unique little wader.

With everyone counting the pennies and the global economy in freefall, there has never been a harder time to get funding from governments etc. Can I make a difference? Can I do something? Answers please on a postcard.... (or e-mail of course).

Congratulations to the international team involved in the Spoon-billed Sandpiper project.
