The very first checklist from the first survey weekend of the Eurasian Shorebird Survey has been submitted from Taiwan in a historic moment. The endless hours of preparation, including setting up a descriptive website, designing the survey methodology and recruiting volunteers, eventually turns into fieldwork, data management and analysis.
The Eurasian Shorebird Survey is a tool to identify where shorebird conservation is effective and where we need to put more focus. Climate change puts enormous pressure on bird populations on a global scale. Our program aims to monitor these effects. However, not all these effects expected to be negative. We can learn from those findings.
