Who are we?
The Shorebird Conservation Society is a community formed to highlight the plight of shorebird populations on a global scale. The community is represented by individuals from extraordinary diverse fields. Scientists, bird conservationists, teachers, students, park rangers, hunters, bird stewards, birdwatchers, citizen scientists, young-environmentalists and climate activists, wildlife artists and photographers, authors and publishers work together to protect shorebirds and their habitats all over the world. We aim to transform outsiders into insiders through community education, programs and events.
Our society is a new approach to work for shorebirds. These days, when every penny counts we form a supportive community a bit differently. Unlike large NGOs, we would not spend a huge amount of money on spoiling our members. We rather spend that money on shorebirds and sharing the good news with our members. Our members are entitled to having discounts and using the opportunity to pre-order any products of the society.
